The Herbs & Spices challenge picked by Elizabeth at Cake or Death had my head spinning. I knew I had some sage cheddar in the fridge that I wanted to integrate into something. Then I thought maybe something with an Indian spice twist... then I thought something fruity and spicy.....
When in doubt go back to your first instinct right? So I settled on a sage cheddar, Goat Cheese and roasted yellow pepper tart.
I lined two mini tart pans with puff pastry and par baked them while I roasted a big yellow pepper on the bbq, cooled and cut about 1/4 of it in a small dice. I shredded the sage cheddar and mixed it with the goat cheese, egg yolk a bit of cream, the diced yellow pepper, salt, pepper & garlic. I filled the par baked tart and baked it at 350 until it was super bubbly and golden brown. While it was baking I tossed the remainder of the pepper into the blender with plain yogurt, a little cream, garlic oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Ok holy smokes this was good. My honey doesnt like stuff like this but I hope he tries it anyway because it was delicious. The thing is, I didnt measure anything so I dont know if I could make it all again! Sadness.... oh well I will appreciate what I have made even more this way I guess.
