Sophie Michell's strawberry & goat's cheese tart

Sophie Michell's strawberry & goat's cheese tart

Sophie says: 'There is a theory that peppercorns really bring out the flavours of strawberries and I agree. This is a lovely combination, especially when paired with goats cheese. Plus it's a really interesting dish to bring out for vegetarian guests, too. I like to serve these tarts with a green salad.'

  • Preparation: 20 mins
  • Cooking: 40 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 1 packet of frozen short crust pastry
  • 400g Sweet Eve strawberries
  • 1 tsp of cracked black pepper
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 400g goat's cheese log (large)

What you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas mark 6. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, then cut out a circle big enough to fit each mini tin. Press down into the corners and blind bake the pastry for 20-30 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
  2. Hull and halve the Sweet Eve strawberries and mix in a bowl with the black pepper. Chop the rosemary and mix with the Sweet Eve strawberries.
  3. When the tart cases are ready, spoon in the Sweet Eve strawberries and then add a slice of goat's cheese on top of each one. Place the tarts back in the oven for 10 minutes.
