Ladies, let’s discuss something deliciously savory today – tarts!
For many, the warm flaky crust of a tart is its reward. Not only do tarts satisfy the taste buds, but they’re also incredibly versatile – you can fill them with sweet or savory ingredients for an unbeatable combination of texture and flavor.
With this post, we take inspiration from classic recipes to offer some delicious and easy-to-make savory tarts that are sure to please any palate; everything from traditional quiches laced with herbs and melted cheese to zesty vegetable galettes featuring seasonal produce can be found here!
If you’re a savory fan like me, you’ll love the idea of a tart. It’s like a delicious pie but in a more elegant form, and the best part – it’s super versatile! You can add veggies, meats, cheeses, and herbs to make it your own.
Firstly, let’s talk about the tart crust. An excellent tart crust should be buttery, flaky, and hold its shape when filled. You can use many types of crusts for savory tarts, but a classic shortcrust pastry is always a good choice. It’s easy to make and goes well with almost any filling. You can also use puff pastry or phyllo pastry for a lighter texture, but remember, they might have less filling.
Now, onto the fillings! The sky’s the limit when it comes to savory tart fillings. For a Greek-style tart, you could use caramelized onions, spinach, feta cheese, and cherry tomatoes. Or how about roasted pumpkin, beetroot, thyme, and goat cheese for a colorful and flavor-packed vegetarian option? For something more meaty, you could go for bacon, leek, and gruyere cheese – this French-inspired tart is always a crowd-pleaser!
Not only are savory tarts delicious, but they’re also a great way to use leftovers. Got some roast beef or chicken from last night’s dinner? Why not shred it up and fill it with some veggies and a creamy sauce? Leftover roasted veggies? They would make a perfect filling for a tart topped with crumbled feta cheese.
And let’s not remember herbs and spices! You can take your savory tarts to the next level with the proper seasoning. My favorite herbs in savory pastries are thyme, rosemary, parsley, and sage. You can also add some heat with some red pepper flakes or paprika.
Lastly, let’s talk about serving and enjoying your savory tarts. They’re perfect for brunch with your girlfriends or a light lunch with a salad on the side. They’re also great for picnics or as a snack for guests. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and reheat them before serving.
