Try out our recipe for cherry tomato & tapenade tart


Accompany this scrumptious centerpiece with a green salad.
Ingredients (serves 4)
circle of pie crust (try our recipe)
20 cherry tomatoes
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp black olive tapenade
1 Tbsp pine nuts
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 sprig fresh thyme (or rosemary)

Directions (20 minutes active time)
Preheat your oven to 180ºC (350ºF).
Lay the pie crust on a buttered tarte tray and make tiny holes with a fork. Bake for about 5 minute without anything on top of the tarte.
Remove from the oven. Spread a layer of Dijon mustard, then a thicker layer of tapenade.
Lay the cherry tomatoes cut in halves, bottom down. Sprinkle the thyme (or rosemary) and pine nuts. Add some pepper (no salt, the tapenade is salty enough) and olive oil. Bake for about 30 minutes.
Serve warm or at room temperature with a side of watercress, for example, and a glass of cool rosé.
