Do you still have a lot of tomatoes? If so, then this recipe is a perfect way to use those juicy ripe tomatoes! Do you like Roquefort cheese? Any kind of cheese works for me ~ tangy, mild, sharp and stinky; with Roquefort cheese at the top of the list.
The sharp, salty taste of Roquefort cheese pairs perfectly with the natural sweetness of tomatoes and makes a savory tart. This tart is so easy to put together and colorful too. It’s simply puff pastry, a little sour cream and mustard with tomatoes, dried thyme, salt and pepper and then baked until the pastry is golden brown. Top it with crumbled Roquefort cheese after baking for a great dish. Feta cheese is just as delicious also!
This makes a fantastic appetizer or side dish or is delicious when served with a salad for a meatless meal. Once you try it, I bet you will be bringing it back for an encore!
