Share this recipe


This recipe makes 2 tarts, each tart will serve 4 adults, to make one tart simply halve the recipe and place remaining pastry back in the freezer for use another time. Even if making one tart you might like to make the full quantity of the goat curd dip as its rather delicious!


If you prefer this can be made into a flat tart without pleating the edges. To do this add another 2 tomatoes to the recipe and take the tomato slices almost to the edge of the pastry, bake as per recipe.



  • 1 x 445g Sour Cream Shortcrust Pastry (green packet), defrosted
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
