Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Courgette tart with mint : Photo of step #1
Roll out 200 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) in a circle, prick all over, then use to line a tart tin or mould. Put to wait in the fridge.

Stage 2 - 10 min.

Prepare 3 courgettes, then slice fairly thinly, using a mandolin if you have one - it makes the job much easier.

Stage 3 - 10 min.

Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a non-stick frying pan over high heat. As soon as it's nice and hot, add the sliced courgettes and cook for a few minutes. They should still be slightly crunchy.

Set aside. If any liquid has come out of the courgettes, drain them thoroughly in a sieve or colander.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Cut 200 g feta into small pieces.

Stage 5 - 5 min.

Wash 1 handful fresh mint leaves, dry and chop roughly with a knife or scissors.

You can add any other herbs you like. I have used parley and thyme here, but this is not essential.

Stage 6 - 3 min.

Pour 200 ml cream into a bowl, add the diced feta, salt and pepper.

Add the mint and mix.

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Preheat the oven to 220°C (430°F).

Take the pastry case out of the fridge, and arrange the courgette slices in the bottom.

Stage 8 - 2 min.

Stage 9 - 40 min.

You can put the tart under the grill for a few minutes at the end to brown the top.

Remarks

For a smoother filling mixture, you can use a hand blender to combine the cream with the feta and herbs.

If you don't like feta, you can just leave it out, or replace it with mozarella or a blue cheese like roquefort, but the taste will be very different. The essence of this recipe is the combination of courgette and mint.

How much will it cost?

Change currency:

And to drink?: Try a Cabernet-Sauvignon rosé from the Pays d'Oc produced by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, chilled but not too cold. Under this name, seen as somewhat pompous and "Old France", lurks a producer with a broad range of wines (the enlightened opinion of my friend Robert, who introduced me to them).
