Courgette And Thyme Tart

This tart freezes very well. Serve it with a snappy-earthy green salad.

for six

  • 250g/8 oz of shortcrust pastry (or make some by linking here – but you will only need two-thirds of this amount
  • 350g/4 oz of courgettes – between two and three courgettes
  • about 10 spring onions – use the whole bunch
  • 200g/7oz feta (from Greece, not the Danish pap)

  • 200g soft goats’ cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200ml/just under a cup of double cream

  2. make the pastry if you haven’t already bought it and chill
  3. chop the spring onions into neat little rounds and fry in the oil in a big frying pan
  4. meanwhile slice the courgettes thinly, and then add to the frying pan
  5. add the salt, pepper and thyme, cook for about three minutes and then take off the heat
  6. mix together the goats’ cheese, eggs, cream and crumbled feta
