Sweet Potato Tart


 

A quick easy lunch or dinner. Serve with a side salad for that fresh feeling perfect dish.

 

This is an Autumn favorite for me. It’s hearty and warm but still light enough, and (with all my recipes available) you can get creative with what you use. Today I used up what we had left in the fridge because nothing should go to waste! You can always make something, you just have to get a little creative!

You can make a whole bunch of these and reheat for work the next day, or even take them on a family picnic. Super easy and full of nutrients!

 

What You Need

  • 1x Orange Sweet Potato (a decent size)
  • 1x Red onion
  • 1x Red capsicum
  • A handful of baby spinach leaves
  • A few cherry tomatoes
  • Savory short pastry
  • Chutney of your choice
  • A sprinkle of your choice of cheese

 

How To

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line the baking tray and roughly chop the Sweet Potato, Toss in some oil of your choice (coconut oil is best) with a little salt and pepper to taste. Place in oven for 15-20 mins, cook until it is just soft. Check in 10 mins.

Butter your mini tart trays to make sure your pastry does not stick.

Place your pastry in your tart tray, making sure that the pastry molds to the sides of the tray.

Scoop a dollop of your choice of chutney. We used Barker’s Onion Marmalade – yum! But any relish or chutney will be fine.

Line your tart with baby spinach leaves and then roughly chop your red capsicum and red onion, keeping them a good size. Once you have done that, pop them both onto on the baby spinach leaves.

When your Sweet Potato is ready, take it out of the oven and place the Sweet Potato chunks in your tart. We don’t want the Sweet Potato to be fully cooked as this will go back into the oven shortly.

Sprinkle on a little bit of cheese, and place it back into oven for a further 10- 15 mins or until golden.

Once tart is cooked, serve with a few cherry tomatoes on top and extra baby spinach leaves.

A little bit of chutney on the side with a dollop of cream cheese will make this dish the perfect balance – naughty and nice!
