December 11, 2016

This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

Ingredients serves 4
1 tbsp olive oil
4 sheet ready-rolled filo pastry, each one halved
75 g half-fat crème fraîche
125 ml British semi-skimmed milk
15 g Italian hard cheese, grated
3 medium British free-range eggs
7.5 g fresh thyme, leaves washed and picked
125 g goats’ cheese, crumbled
140 g fresh figs, halved
200 g bag mixed leaf salad

How to prepare
Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Brush an 18cm round loose-bottomed cake tin with a little of the oil, then line with 1 sheet of filo pastry. Layer the remaining sheets of pastry, laying the sheets on top of each other, brushing with oil between each layer.

Put the crème fraîche, milk, grated hard cheese, eggs and most of the thyme in a bowl and mix together. Stir in the crumbled goats’ cheese, season with black pepper, then pour the mixture into the tart.

Arrange the halved figs, cut-side up, over the top and scatter over the remaining thyme. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, until golden and set.

Let the tart cool slightly, then slice and serve with the salad.
