Chorizo tart

20 January 2017

A few key ingredients and some readymade puff pastry is really all you need for this clever side dish.

Serves 4 Preparation: 20 min Cooking: about 20 min

  • 1 sheet readymade puff pastry
  • 15-20 ml (3-4 t) green pesto 
  • 8-10 thin mozzarella cheese slices
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1-2 chorizo sausages, thinly sliced
  • a few black olives
  • fresh basil leaves

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

1 Roll out the pastry slightly thinner. Score a line 1 cm from the edge all the way around, being careful not to cut all the way through. Prick the pastry inside the line.

2 Spread pesto over the pastry and top with the cheese and tomato slices. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle the sausage slices and olives on top.

3 Bake in the oven until the pastry is cooked and the cheese has melted. Sprinkle the basil on top.

TO BRAAI Put the tart in a folding braai grid and cook over fairly hot coals until the crust is cooked. Pack a few coals on a sheet of aluminium foil and place on the grid to char the top slightly.
