Zucchini Goat Cheese Tart
Recipe type: appetizer or side dish
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 2-3 small yellow or green zucchinis (or courgettes as they are referred to in England)
  • 3-4 oz of goat chevre of your choice - I used a dill garlic one for this tart
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. lightly four a surface and roll out your puff pastry into a 12x12 sheet and place it on a parchment covered baking tray
  3. using a sharp knife, score a line all the way around the pastry about a ½ inch from the edge (be careful not to cut all the way through)
  4. dot bits of the goat chevre over the surface of the pastry (except for the ½ inch border you scored). Chevre can be a little difficult to spread, especially on uncooked dough so I find the method of dotting it over the pastry till it's covered works best
  5. slice the zucchini into slices about ½ cm thick and place on the chevre covered pastry. You can lay them out as I have in the photos or you can layer them slightly - whatever you like.
  6. pop in the oven for 10 minutes and then take out and brush the zucchini and pastry with olive oil
  7. sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste
  8. return to oven for 20 minutes or until pastry starts to turn golden. I find cooking times for puff pastry can vary widely and it can quickly go from golden to burnt so keep an eye on it once it hits that 20 minutes mark
