Brie and Beetroot Tart

Brie and Beetroot Tart

Brie and Beetroot Tart served with a side salad. This is vegetarian recipe is easy to make and can be eaten a few days later. Or even frozen. I used brie instead of my normal choice, feta for this dish. The results were incredible and I’ll be definitely making this again!

This Brie and Beetroot Tart recipe is my first attempt. And it tasted amazing! I have made this previously but using feta, or goats cheese. This was my intention this evening but I’d noticed some brie in the fridge. ou can use any creamy cheese. The sell-by date was nearly up on my brie so I wanted to experiment!

I’ve not posted any recipes for a week now. This is unlike me. It’s vegetarian week this week, so I left it to Bex and Tom! I don’t cook many vegetarian dishes, but on a Friday afternoon, I’ve managed to pull something out of the bag. A Brie and Beetroot Tart.

I have made similar tarts to this one previously. Albeit using feta or goats cheese. The flavours work really well with this dish. The roasted red onion finishes off the flavour of the brie beautifully.

Cooking your beets.

It’s important to cook your beats first when making this. If not, they can be quite firm and they won’t be a good texture with the pastry. I baked mine for 20 minutes in honey prior. I like my onions well done so they were grilled for 10 minutes prior. The beetroot was thinly sliced. I cooked it for around 20-25 minutes. You can use pre-sliced beetroot but it won’t taste as good.
