Tomato, feta and filo tart

I don’t know why filo pastry makes pastry based goodies look so much prettier; but I think it does. It also works well in this recipe as it is light and an excellent carrier of the different flavours of tomatoes and feta. My mother used to make a similar tart from her French cookery book (which I will blog about at some point as its wonderful) but in this case as with most of my recipes I decided what I fancied and went with it. This is the result.

To make your very own tart you will need

4 sheets filo pastry (you may need more)

Assorted tomatoes of your choice

2 shallots

Approx 150g Feta cheese cut into cubes

Wholegrain mustard

Melted butter

Balsamic vingar

Olive oil

Dried chives

 

Preheat your oven to 180°C. In a lose bottomedtin arrange your sheets of pastry into a base shape brushing the melted butter on the pastry sheets between layers.
