Fennel and sausage meat tart

Can one ever tire of quiche? The answer is yes, certainly. There are times when, really, enough is enough!

This is a very good, and tasty alternative. The fennel seeds give it a bit of crunch and the apricots prevent the sausage meat from taking over as it were.

It can be prepared ahead of time, or frozen, and reheated. If you freeze, allow time for the tart to defrost, and then reheat in a hot oven, otherwise the pastry can go soggy.

You can buy ready-made shortcrust pastry – or very easily make your own – this recipe makes just the right amount.

It goes especially well with chargrilled broccoli with miso sauce and toasted hazelnuts.

NB allow a couple of hours cooking/cooling time.
