Beet & Goat Cheese Tart with Walnut-Rosemary Crust

beet-tartI hope you all like beets, because here’s another recipe featuring the lovely red root. This tart uses my all-time favorite savory crust recipe. It’s so quick and easy to prepare, and the results are so rewarding, that you have no excuse to use a store-bought crust. The whole tart comes together in about 20 minutes (plus oven time), and I promise both you and your dinner guests will be thoroughly impressed.

  • 1 recipe Olive Oil and Whole Wheat Tart Crust, with walnuts and rosemary
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk

  • 6 oz / 170 g yogurt (preferably greek)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 beets, cooked and cut into small cubes
  • 5 oz / 150 g goat cheese, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Roll out the crust and fit it in a 10 inch tart pan with a removable bottom.

Sauté the onion in a small pan over high heat with a teaspoon of olive oil until it starts to turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and continue to cook, over low heat, for about 10 minutes. Set aside.

Beat together the eggs and yolk in a small bowl, then add the yogurt, salt and pepper and beat until smooth.

Assemble the tart: evenly distribute the cooked onions, beat cubes, and, lastly, the crumbled goat cheese. Pour over the egg and yogurt mixture and bake at 350°F/180°C for 20-25 minutes.
