Homemade Tomato Paste*
- 3 medium-sized ripe tomatoes finely minced or blended.
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 sheets vegan frozen puff pastry defrosted
- 250 g ripe cherry tomatoes** washed, sliced inch thick
- salt and peper
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- chopping board
- Tart Pan
- Medium-sized frying pan
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Pat the puff pastry evenly in a tart pan then poke the bottom evenly with a fork. Bake for roughly 10 - 15 minutes.
(Homemade Tomato Paste*) Meanwhile, place the 3 finely minced tomatoes in a medium-sized frying pan with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of raw sugar. Over a medium heat simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until the water has reduced. Turn off the heat and set aside.
Spread the tomato paste over the defrosted frozen puff pastry. Arrange the tomatoes over the tomato paste and season generously with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the tomatoes are roasted well caramelised.
Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Serve by drizzling additional olive oil over the tart along with dollops of dijon mustard and fresh basil. Bon Appétit! :)
