Goats Cheese & Beetroot Tart and Goats Cheese & Fig Tart


It's day six of National Vegetarian Week today, and I hope that you have been enjoying the beautiful weather.

Goats Cheese & Fig Tart
Earlier in the week I was sent a wonderful Hamper from those friendly goats at Capricorn Goats Cheese. Capricorn Goats Cheese is low in cholesterol and rich in calcium. It is also Veg Society Approved, making Capricorn Goats Cheese the perfect ingredient to use during National Vegetarian Week. I absolutely love goats cheese, and Capricorn Goats Cheese is so rich and has a very creamy defined taste, owing to the goats grazing on the rich pastures of Somerset.


I have been cooking with Goats Cheese today and so I am featuring two different quick and easy Puff Pastry Tarts for Day 6 of veggie week - Goats Cheese and Beetroot Tart and Goats Cheese and Fig Tart. These Tarts are more of an assembly job then physically cooking - great for nights when you need dinner on the table asap.



Goats cheese & Beetroot Tart

We really enjoyed making and eating the Goats Cheese Tarts. The creamy sweetness of the Capricorn Goats Cheese blended really well with the red onion marmalade, the beetroot and the figs. We slightly preferred the Goats Cheese and Beetroot Tart with the added flavour of the spring onions to the Fig Tart - although both were delicious.

Here are the recipes below - I hope you enjoy them!!

250g Puff Pastry Block - ready to roll
