As I may have mentioned a couple of times, we love light lunches, with a more substantial meal in the evening. Lunch therefore often tends to be soup or a savoury tart. Savoury tarts are great for this because of how quick and easy they are to assemble, light and satisfying without losing out on flavour. You can either make your own crust or use a store bought one. Either way tarts are worth a try! Many of these work either hot or cold, leaving you with wiggle room, especially on a weekday. They do look fancy enough for company or a pot luck though. Here are some of our favourites! Have a browse and click the links to see the recipes!
Aubergine and Courgette Tart
With Mediterranean hints to the flavouring, this one is particularly light but flavourful. Check out the recipe here.
This is an old favourite. It works with bacon or as a vegetarian dish, with tomatoes or other extras over the top, or plain onion. In any case it is fragrant and flavourful and I absolutely love it! Check out the recipe here.
This was a new recipe I tried this year and loved it! Sweet yet savoury, Bright and colourful to cheer a grey day, and so very tasty! Check out the recipe here.
Cheese and Apple Tart
This is a twist on an old favourite. For years cheese tart has had bits of bacon, onions or tomatoes, sometimes a little spinach, but the addition of the apple is truly special. It adds a sweet note in counterpoint to the salty cheese, and a textural bonus lacking in the original. Best had hot, check out the recipe here.
Colourful and bright, the tomatoes are complemented by rounds of mozzarella and basilic in this tart, this tart bears trying! Check out the recipe here.
This one is seasonal, but definitely bears sharing, just so it is on hand when the time comes. Juicy chanterelles bring a depth of flavour to this tart and a beautiful golden hue. Check out the recipe here.
Rosehip and Pumpkin Tart
And lastly, a bit on the sweet side for lunch, but who knows? This is a sweet tart (as long as you use a sweet pumpkin!) but colourful, beautiful and delicious! Check out the recipe here.
