Tart with feta and cherry tomato

Last Sunday’s cheesecake was really good but extra extra chocolatey, and I was getting a bit tired of so much sweet (and calories!) after one week eating it. So this Sunday I decided to try something salty and searching for ideas I bumped onto this feta cheese and cherry tomato tart on Cafe Fernando.

INGREDIENTS

Pate Brisee (Tart Dough)

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (around 200gr.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 120gr. butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons ice-cold water
  • also added 1 egg

Tomato and Feta Cheese Tart

  • Pate Brisee, chilled in the refrigerator for at least an hour
  • 200gr. cups feta cheese
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Few sprigs of fresh thyme oregano (I prefer oregano)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • also added some walnuts

RESULT

Yummy!!!! It is very easy to make and it cannot go wrong! The most “difficult” part is the dough, but I think you can make it in an easier way than the one described in Cafe Fernando, just mixing everything in a mixer (maybe it turns out different this way, I have to try it before I can affirm that). Perfect for dinner or light lunch. I will definitely do it again. And try it hot!! It is much better just out of the oven than at room temperature.

FINAL GRADE

It is a winner. I will give it a 5!

  1. Hi Artemis!
    Thanks for stopping by! Indeed feta pies are very common in greece, and this one was a huge success, I will repeat it for sure, maybe adding green peppers as well.
