Recently, I posted a review of the Jus Roll gluten free puff pastry, and noted how much it wow-ed me with it’s flaky and buttery puff. Today I’m bringing the puff appreciation back again, and have this brilliant and easy summery savoury recipe that I couldn’t wait to bake. This sweet potato and goat’s cheese puff pastry tart is perfect for any summer picnic, garden party, or lunchbox, as it can be eaten hot and cold, with lots of different options for a side.
You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this, and it doesn’t cost a fortune to make, if you get the ingredients from the right places. Most supermarkets have sweet potatoes on special offer now, and you can pick up the gluten free pastry for around £2.
Even though the ingredients are cheap enough to buy, when it’s finished, it will look a million dollars! Seriously, I was blown away by the fact that I made THAT. It looked pretty impressive even before I put it in the oven.
What I love about this recipe is that there is no faffing around with making your own gluten free puff pastry, or thawing out frozen pastry blocks and rolling it out. And as much as I love a challenge, I don’t think life is worth stressing over pastry.
The flavour and filling was inspired by some gluten free pies I was taste testing for work, and I noticed that sweet potato and goat’s cheese really goes well together. The addition of red onion also creates a beautiful marriage of flavours. So simple, but delicious.
I couldn’t get over this, so I decided to head to the supermarket and get the puff pastry and goat’s cheese. I feel like if you were feeling the pastry – you could double up the pastry and stack two sheets on top of each other, rather than just using the one.
If you can’t wait to make this either, the recipe is just below.
