Fig and Goats Cheese Tart

I am absolutely obsessed with making puffed pastry tarts at the moment. I’m having at least two a week the past number of weeks. They are just so quick and easy to prepare, especially after a long day in the kitchen at work when the last thing I want to do is come home and cook again! This is one of my favourite recipes. You could also add a couple of slices of prosciutto on top of the figs – the prosciutto goes deliciously crispy when baked.

Serves two as a light supper or snack

What you need:

Puff pastry rectangle measuring 26 x 12cm

60g soft goats cheese

A sprig of fresh thyme (optional)

3 ripe figs, quartered

Black pepper


Preheat your oven to 200°C fan/220°C

Place the puffed pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Define the crust of the pastry but scoring a 2cm border around the edge of the pastry.

Dot most of the goats cheese evenly over the base of the pastry, avoiding the border. Season with a twist or two of black pepper before placing the fig quarters on top of the goats cheese. Sprinkle the remaining goats cheese over the top of the figs.

Bake for 20 minutes. Let the tart cool for a minute or two, then drizzle with honey and serve.

This tart would make a delicious supper served with a side salad.

Enjoy x
