Stage 1 - 5 min.

Prepare 1 shallot and leave whole.

Rinse 3 cups + 3 tablespoons tomatoes, dry, then remove the hard stalk end with a small knife.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Put the tomatoes and shallot in a centrifuge juicer. This should give you about 500 ml (about 2 cups or just under 1 pint) of juice. Salt and pepper then check the seasoning.

Stage 3 - 2 min.

Put 1 teaspoon gelatin to soften in a bowl of cold water.

Stage 4 - 5 min.

Pour the tomato coulis into a saucepan and put on medium heat.

Bring up to a simmer, whisking gently from time to time.

Stage 5 - 1 min.

Stage 6 - 1 min.

Mix well and leave to cool and thicken slightly.

Stage 7 - 3 min.

Sit a 7-inch (18 cm) tart ring on a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Note: if your coulis is still runny (if still hot), line the ring with stretch film to prevent it leaking.

Stage 8 - 2 hours

Pour the coulis into the ring and refrigerate for about 2 hours to set.

Stage 9 - 2 hours

Stage 10 - 4 min.

Preheat the oven to 410°F (210°C).

Roll out 1 cup Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) and cut out a circle the same size as the tomato jelly (7 inches / 18 cm). Sit this on a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Stage 11 - 1 min.

Put a wire rack on top to stop the pastry swelling too much during cooking.

Stage 12 - 30 min.

Bake for about 30 minutes until the pastry is a nice golden brown.

Leave to cool.

Stage 13 - 4 min.

Assembling the tart


Put the pastry base on the serving plate and sit the disc of tomato jelly on top (now you will see why it was a good idea to freeze it beforehand), adjusting until neat.

Don't worry about the jelly; it will come back to room temperature in about 10 minutes - the time it will take you to arrange the avocado on the tart.

Stage 14 - 3 min.

In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lime juice, salt and pepper.

This will be the dressing for the avocado slices.

Stage 15 - 5 min.

Stage 16 - 5 min.

Top the tomato jelly with the slices of avocado. Be generous and try to arrange them attractively.

Stage 17 - 2 min.

Garnish with a few coriander leaves.
Remarks
It is worth taking trouble over your jelly: use really ripe, well-flavoured tomatoes. If necessary, add a little lime (or lemon) juice to the coulis.

If you don't have a juicer, you can blend the tomatoes, then pass them through a sieve.

If you don't have lime juice, use lemon instead.

This tart can be varied by using shortcrust instead of puff pastry.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.
