For most of you, you would not be making this for a weekday family meal but as a dish to impress this is a great tart. I give it 10 out of 10 for looks and flavour. It’s a bit of a faff but you can prepare each of the elements ahead of time. Just assemble and cook when you are ready to eat.
The recipe can be found on BBC Good Food.com. They don’t though give you the rocket pesto recipe, any fresh shop bought recipe can be used but really it is so simple to make, I’ve given you a recipe below. I think this probably makes more than the 150g needed for the recipe but it keeps well in the fridge if you know you will use it within a few days, otherwise freezing works very well.
I found that the vegetable strips took a little longer to cook in the microwave than the recipe suggested but that really wasn’t a big issue.
Rocket Pesto: blend all ingredients below in a blender or food processor
- 50g chopped rocket leaves
