Ingredients
  

Pastry:

  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut in cubes
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 tbsp Water

Filling:

  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2-3 large Ripe tomatoes sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 g Goat cheese crumbled or sliced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Optional:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Lavender Honey
  • basil leaves for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, place flour and salt.
  • Mix in butter by pinching between fingers until the texture becomes like coarse oatmeal.
  • Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the egg and water.
  • Bring dough together, not over mixing.
  • Wrap and place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to rest.
  • Slice tomatoes and basil and set aside.
  • Once dough is rested, roll out dough to 1/8 “ on a floured surface.
  • Transfer to tart pan with removable bottom and trim off excess dough.
  • If making a “galette” style tart, roll out dough to 1/8” in a large circle.
  • Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Spread an even layer of mustard over the base of the tart.
  • Allow to sit a few minutes to dry out.
  • Arrange tomatoes over the mustard in a single layer, then drizzle with olive oil (and honey if using).
  • Sprinkle over fresh herbs, salt and pepper.
  • Layer goat cheese on top.
  • If making a “galette”, gather the edges to envelope the contents.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until dough is baked and tomatoes are tender.
