    Cherry tomato tart slices

    Serves: 8
    Cooking Time: 30 mins


    • 400g puff pastry
    • 120g basil or coriander pesto
    • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 10ml (2 tsp) olive/avocado oil
    • 1 large egg, beaten
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste



    Preheat the oven to 200°C.


    Roll out the pastry to a rectangle of about 35cm x 25cm.


    With a knife, make a small indent around the rectangle to create a border of about 1,5cm. You will now have a smaller rectangle within the pastry.


    Spread the pesto evenly over the smaller rectangle. Scatter the tomatoes over the pesto, drizzle with the oil and season.


    Brush the border of the pastry with the egg and bake until the pastry border is golden and the tomatoes soft, about 20 minutes.


    Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Cut into small squares and serve.
