Roasted Beetroot and Goats' Cheese Tart with Lucy's Green Pesto

To celebrate our Green Pesto dressing being 20% off this month in Waitrose, we've created this delicious autumnal tart making the most of this beautiful dressing. Roasted beetroot and goats' cheese work fabulously here with the Green Pesto and it is super simple to make - the perfect weekend recipe! 

INGREDIENTS

25g butter

1 tbs olive oil

2 red onions, cut into  ½ cm slices

10g oregano leaves, chopped

1 packet ready rolled All butter puff pastry

100g ricotta

250g packet cooked beetroot, cut  into 3mm slices

METHOD 

  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a  medium pan. Add the onions and cook for about 10 minutes until softened and golden. Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing and cook for another minute or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the oregano and allow to cool.

  1. Spread the ricotta over the pastry  (inside the border).  Top with half the goats' cheese and then the onions. Arrange the beetroot slices on top  and crumble over the remaining goats' cheese. Brush the border of the pastry with the beaten egg and then chill the tart for 30 minutes.

  1. Place the tart in the oven and bake for 30 - 35  minutes until golden and cooked through.
