Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Tomato tart : Photo of step #1
Preheat the oven to 210°C or 410°F.

Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into a tart mould or tin, spread it all over the bottom with a brush.

Line this with 1 Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée). If you have a protection paper with the puff pastry, leave it, and grease between paper and pastry.

If needed cut around the top of the tin to remove excess pastry.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Prick the bottom of pastry with a fork all over to prevent it rising too much during cooking.

Spread out 3 tablespoons French mustard all over the puff pastry, with the back of a tablespoon or a brush.

Leave to wait in the refrigerator.

Stage 3 - 20 min.

Peel 6 tomatoes, and cut them in medium slices.

Note: if you have the time (1 hour), salt them on both sides, and spread them out on a grid or in a strainer for aboout an hour, this draw out some of the juice could make the pastry soggy during cooking. See below on this subject.

Stage 4 - 10 min.

Lay the best tomato slices around the bottom of the pastry case, as regularly as possible.

Use a metallic spatula or a fork to place the slices, it's easier than with fingers.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

Stage 8 - 35 min.

The tart is cooked when the bottom of the pastry is cooked, i.e golden brown.

Best eaten warm.

Possible alternative:

For a stronger tomato flavour, you can, after adding the mustard and before the tomatoes, add a layer of pizza sauce.
Remarks
The tomatoes depending on of their origin and ripeness could give off a lot of juice, which can be a bit annoying as it makes the pastry soggy. To try to reduce this there are several methods:
  • Do not salt before cooking, because it's the salt which brings out the juice. Instead salt salt just after bringing out of the oven.
  • Drain off as most of the juice partway through cooking, but it's a slightly delicate operation. For this Francoise uses a large plastic ex-medical syringe.
  • Salt the the tomatoes and leave the juice to drain off before using (see above).
Keeping
Several hours in the fridge, covered by a plastic film.
