Food Matters Project: Tomato-Goat Cheese Tart

I'm a little late to the Food Matters Project  party this week. Sorry. My older son turned 10 on June 1st and we spent the weekend celebrating and spoiling him with a camping trip...with 5 other families in tow. It was exhausting, but so worth the effort. So, needless to say, my Bittman-inspired tomato crisp took a backseat. But I finally made it for dinner last night. A Bulgarian goat cheese laden, chestnut flour-topped tomato tart.

Nicole from the Giving Table picked our recipe this week. Click here to read her take on the dish. And click here to see what the other creative cookers whipped up (look in the comments section).

Since I was already making a caramelized onion tart for Riley's end of the year party, I decided to make a bottom crust for this dish, too.

The Crust
2 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 C butter
1/2 C cold water

Use a pastry cutter to blend the butter into the flour. Add the cold water and mix lightly until it forms a ball. Roll the dough out, between two sheets of parchment paper, and lay into a tart pan.
The Tart
Layer into the crust crumbled goat cheese, sliced tomatoes, and caramelized onions, seasoning with freshly ground sea salt and flower pepper to taste. Once you've reached the height you want for your dish, create a savory crumble topping.

1/4 C softened butter
1/2 C crumbed goat cheese
1/2 C chestnut flour
2 T white whole wheat flour

Use a fork, or pastry cutter, to blend the ingredients to a pea-sized crumble.

Spoon the topping over the tomatoes and bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for an hour.

From the crisp topping to the hot tomatoes, I loved this dish. My family thought the goat cheese was a little too pungent. So, I'll make this again with a more mild cheese.


  1. Hi Camilla,

    I love chestnuts and the use of chestnut flour here intrigues me.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
