OMG!! This is one amazing tart! I am so excited to share this recipe with you all!! I came across this recipe during our Shelter in Place and here I was trying to pass my time watching Food Network when I came across a young pastry chef Natasha Pickowicz from New York who was showing Ina Garten how to make a carrot tart!
A simple recipe with spectacular results
The recipe was so simple that I was blown away at how spectacular the end result was! When I say simple I am seriously talking simple ingredients – carrots, onions, goat cheese, egg, olive oil, salt and pepper. And of course a tart shell. But to think that one can make something so beautiful and delicious with such humble ingredients just warms my heart 🧡🥕.
Easy to make but plan ahead
When I made this tart, while Rani was enjoying each savory bite she asked me “Is it easy to make?” My response “Definitely easy to make, it’s just time-consuming.” Why? Because the tart takes 45 minutes to bake and the dough has to be thawed and ready to go – so this has to be a “plan ahead” type of recipe. Other than that, this is one awesome recipe! And you know what? I can’t wait to make it again! This time when I have guests over. I can only imagine the ooohs and aaaaahs I’ll get when I serve this beauty!!!
To make it easy on myself I opted to use a frozen pastry dough. Just make sure to thaw it well in advance according to package directions. On the other hand if you want to make a pastry shell from scratch, follow the instructions in the recipe for a flaky, buttery crust.
