Gruyère AOP and Two-Tomato Tart
1 packet of ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
(closest substitute: pie crust)
• 1/4 lb. (100g) Gruyère AOP, grated + a few
thin slices to decorate
• 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
• 3 long Italian Plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced
• 2 clusters of cherry tomatoes, stem (peduncle) attached
• A few sprigs of thyme
• Olive oil
• Salt and pepper
Time required: 30 minutes
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a tart dish with greaseproof paper and the pastry. Prick the base with a fork. Scatter the Gruyère AOP and then the breadcrumbs over the base. Cover this with the sliced tomatoes first, and then the cherry tomatoes on top.
Garnish with sprigs of thyme. Season and drizzle with olive oil. Cook for 20 minutes.
Leave the tart to cool on a cooling rack. Decorate with the sliced Gruyère AOP.
This tart is delicious served with a mâche (lamb's lettuce) salad dressed with balsamic vinegar.
