A savory tart made with creamy goat cheese, basil, and candied red peppers, both luxurious and inviting. The perfect side dish for any holiday meal. 

Goat Cheese Red Pepper Tart #holidays #christmas #Thanksgiving #tart

I’m a sucker for savory pies and tarts, especially around the holidays.

The crisp buttery crust layered with cheese, herbs, and toppings is almost more than I can bear.

Every fall I bake up a new variety to share with friends and family at holiday events. Last year’s green bean mushrooms tart was a huge success. And before that there was a lovely not-so-sweet pear and brie tart, and a fresh tomato tart that was hard to beat.

Coming up with obscure traditions that only mean something to me is big fun in my little world… like annual savory tart day!

Plus, savory tarts offer a sneaky platform for smuggling veggies into your children. No one ever argues about eating vegetables when they are served in pie form.

That is a fact.

Making - Goat Cheese Red Pepper Tart #holidays #christmas #Thanksgiving #tart

Our farmers markets are closing down for the year, but fortunately, I saved some of the best peppers this season with my FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer.

Remember my post about experimenting with a FoodSaver?

I vacuum sealed some vibrant red Italian Marconi Peppers in September, put them in my basement fridge for later use, and forgot all about them.

FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer

Then earlier this week, I found them down stairs and was amazed to see that they were still in good shape 7 weeks later.


I am officially sold on my FoodSaver. The basil I vacuum sealed lasted 2 whole weeks, and that is approximately 12 days, 8 hours, and 42 minutes longer than it usually lasts. Give or take a few minutes.

Goat Cheese & Candied Red Pepper Tart #holidays #christmas #Thanksgiving #tart

So today we are celebrating Annual Savory Tart Day (yes, I totally made that up) with a gorgeous Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Tart and a fabulous FoodSaver Giveaway!

Release the confetti!

This easy tart is filled with ultra creamy goat cheese and fresh basil leaves. Then topped with sweet sliced red pepper, and a little drizzle of honey, so that the red peppers “candy” as the tart bakes. See how glossy they are?

The sweet and tangy quality of the red pepper top works wonders with the cream goat cheese filling below. This was a match made in heaven.

Yield: 1 tart

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Goat Cheese Red Pepper Tart


For the crust:

  • 1 1/4 cup Gold Medal Flour
  • 1 stick COLD unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 3-5 Tb. ice-cold booze (whiskey, brandy, vodka)

For the filling:

  • 10 oz. chevre goat cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 2-3 marconi sweet peppers (or red bell peppers) cut into thin rings
  • 1 Tb. honey
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. For the Crust: Add the flour, butter and salt to a food processor, and pulse until chopped into small pellet-like pieces. Pour the booze over ice to chill, then strain the ice and add 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing the mixture, until in just comes together. Form into a disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Once the dough has chilled, flour a work surface and a roll it out into a large 11 inch circle. carefully fold it over the rolling pin and move to a tart pan. Lower the crust into the pan, don't stretch. Fit the crust down into the edges, then crimp off the excess dough over the top of the pan.
  3. Mix the softened goat cheese and egg until smooth. Then spread evenly at the bottom of the tart. Lay a a single layer of fresh basil leaves over the goat cheese. Then layer the red peppers over the basil leaves, overlapping. Drizzle the honey over the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake the tart on the lowest rack for 35 minutes, until the crust is baked through and the red peppers and honey look "candied" and glossy. Cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting.

    you do not know how long I have wanted one of these – i have a very small garden each year and need a new way to preserve my herbs and produce besides canning. I would use the food saver to vacuum just about everything!! thanks for the give-away!

    We have a big garden so I could find a lot of uses for a vacuum sealer. Thinking it would be great for salads, too.

    Tracy — November 15, 2013 @ 8:35 am

    I have a much older version of this, and I use it for dividing bulk cheese into smaller portions and freezing it. I’ve also used it for spices and pre-frozen berries (so they don’t turn into jam in the vacuum). Love the FoodSaver! (This recipe looks right up may alley, too!)

    I shop at Costco, love the meats but 6 steaks are a few too many for one meal.

    We’d use the foodsaver to help with marinating chicken as well as for keeping herbs longer.

    Kathy — November 15, 2013 @ 10:12 am

    We used to have a food-saver but it’s old and not sealing well, definitely in the market for a new one! Love your site! Thanks,

    sophie — November 15, 2013 @ 10:16 am

    We had a food saver…and cooked loads of chicken anticipating to ‘seal it up’ for when our babe comes for ready-meals…and found it was dead. We are a bit lost without our FoodSaver!

    Eating locally as I do, I save a LOT of produce for the long New York winters (the chest freezer is packed to the brim). I’ve long thought about trying out a Food Saver, but haven’t bit the bullet. Winning one would be great! :)

    Melodie — November 15, 2013 @ 11:27 am

    I currently have a food saver, but it’s on its last legs. My favorite use for the food saver is for meat. I love to add marinade to the meat and then use the food saver to make family sized portions. When I take the meat out of the freezer, it’s marinading while it thaws. Works perfectly!


  35. #
    Vunda V — November 15, 2013 @ 11:28 am

    i would definitely use it to buy bulk meat and break it down into single portions for my freezer

    Alison — November 15, 2013 @ 12:22 pm

    Since I live in an area where there isn’t much organic meat, I buy meat in bulk whenever I am in such an area. With this foodsaver, it would allow me to keep my meat fresher for longer!

  51. #
    Christine P — November 15, 2013 @ 3:16 pm

    I always buy fresh vegetables, and I’m pretty limited with just going to Kroger as it is quick and easy. With this, I could go to our farmers market, which does take more time and effort, and SAVE all of that lovely produce for more than a few days! That would be fantastic!


  52. #

    Kathleen B. — November 15, 2013 @ 6:14 pm

    I think I would use it to freeze half of meat packages. I am trying to use less meat in recipes and have half a pkg leftover a lot of times. Oh and for my garden yield, too.

    LyRae Williams — November 16, 2013 @ 6:19 pm

    Unfortunately I hate buying fresh produce because it never lasts. A food saver is an awesome idea but I didn’t know anyone who uses one. Seeing your comments and how well the product works is really making me think harder about getting one. Fresh produce tastes so much better than the canned/frozen stuff and the longer I can keep it means the less waste of food and money and the better I like it.


  74. #
    Marty — November 16, 2013 @ 11:20 pm

    It’s just my boyfriend and I, so even though I halve most recipes, I still always have lots of leftovers. I love freezing things I can keep for awhile before reheating. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    I would use my vacuum sealer to freeze meat. We recently just moved from San Diego to the middle of NO WHERE in Pennsylvania for my husbands job and now have to drive quite a long ways to get good quality meat (Costco is 2 hours away). Other than diapers, my main purchase is meat. Seriously Costco meat is the best, but sometimes it goes bad because I do not have the proper means to freeze it. Think of all the money I could save with the vacuum sealer!!!!

    I’ve had a FoodSaver for years; I tell my daughter and her friends that the key to saving money on food is Costco and a FoodSaver. Meat especially; I still buy in bulk though both daughters are now on their own and meat stays great for a year or more. Could not live without it. Could use a new one though. :)

    What a gorgeous tart; perfect for this season!


  96. #
    Gina — November 18, 2013 @ 9:15 am

    Beautiful dish- Love the pop of red-

    I would use it for storage- we are big on stocking up. So trips to the butcher would be followed by preparing all the food for the freezer.


  97. #
    Katherine C. — November 18, 2013 @ 9:19 am

    Dale Duckworth — November 18, 2013 @ 9:51 am

    This tart looks amazing. My husband, best friend and I are going to a concert tomorrow night. We were going to go out to dinner first, but I think this might be way better. At home with a salad and a fabulous tart for dinner, then a concert, could it get any better?
    I cannot believe those peppers were not frozen, did I misunderstand that they were in the FRIDGE??? for 7 weeks?

    Monica Crouch — November 18, 2013 @ 10:44 am

    I buy 5 lbs or more of organic ground beef, sausage and bone-in chicken breast when they are on sale at our local meat market. I brown the beef and sausage and pack into one pound ziplocs and freeze for easy use in casseroles, tacos, biscuits and gravy. I cook the chicken in my crock pot, all day, with a can of broth and then strain the broth for use in soup or casseroles and take chicken, from the bone and freeze in recipe size amounts for use when a recipe calls for cooked chicken. It makes meal time easy for me or my husband to prepare as we are disabled and cooking isn’t as easy as it once was. This food saver would keep our frozen meat fresher for a long period of time.


  104. #
    Windy Phillips — November 18, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    I would love to use this for when I buy my meats in bulk while they’re on sale and then portion them to the size I use for cooking! That would just be the beginning though, it’d also be awesome to have when I make large batches and want to freeze half! :)

    I buy meat in bulk at Costco and having this food saver would allow me to keep my meat longer.

    SO many things. I love when chilies are fresh in the summer. Sun dried tomatoes. Herbs are at their best. Would love to be able to preserve them longer. The list is endless.

    I would vacuum seal meals for my son to have at college – he hates the food there, he says he thinks the food isn’t fit for human consumption.

    This would be AWSOME for the holidays….always have something left over from cooking and I hate the thought of waste.

    Chris — November 18, 2013 @ 5:26 pm

    I usually cook my freshly purchased Farmers Market meats, chicken, pork and lovely veggies while they are fresh, but need to freeze some. I´d loove not to have to freeze them!
    I´ve had my eye on one of these FoodSavers for soo long, but have not yet gotten it into my “buy now” list. How exciting.

    Chris — November 18, 2013 @ 5:34 pm

    I was so excited I forgot to comment on the tempting,, luscious goat cheese tart! This is high on the list to try this weekend! Thanks for the lovely recipe.

    Would love to replace my Original Food Saver – a Seal- A- Meal… also have a manual vacuum sealer… NOT as good as a Food saver BUT when No power is available… Wallah>>>

    Annette — November 18, 2013 @ 6:42 pm

    I’d use this to freeze meat, because I like to buy it in bulk.

    Came upon your blog because of the Asian turkey creation posting. I love your sense of humor and blog style. Have always wanted to get a vacuum sealer but haven’t got a chance to. Look forward to winning and put it to good use!

    Dawn — November 18, 2013 @ 8:08 pm

    I batch cook and it would be very helpful if I had this Food Saver to freeze my meals without getting freezer burned. Not to mention all of the meat and ingredients I buy in bulk.

    Stephanie @ Stephanie's Az Kitchen — November 18, 2013 @ 9:23 pm

    Similar to other posts… I do a lot of freezer cooking and this would really really be a helpful tool in my kitchen for my small family. Love the pictures in your blog :) I am not a fan of anything goat (was forced to eat/drink it as a child) BUT this looks so beautiful :)

    Chantal — November 18, 2013 @ 9:45 pm

    Marsha Lynne — November 19, 2013 @ 7:48 pm

    This is a fantastic giveaway. We live about one hour away from the closest grocery store. I try to only make one or two trips to town a month. It is hard to find good fresh food here, so when found this would be better than better.

    Vanessa — November 20, 2013 @ 12:45 am

    Since I’m single and live alone, this FoodSaver vacuum would be a wonderful resource for keeping the (often bulk-sized) sale items I buy fresher for longer. It would reduce my waste and allow me to buy a wider variety of produce items that I am sometimes hesitant to do for fear of them going to waste from spoiling. This ultimately would help me to eat healthier while saving on my food budget. In addition, it would allow me to try out more recipes and experiment with cooking more often – something that as it is has some limitations due to ingredient freshness.

    Vanessa — November 20, 2013 @ 12:47 am

    FoodSaver vacuum would allow me to eat fresher!

    Vickie — November 20, 2013 @ 4:41 am

    LaLaLand — November 21, 2013 @ 9:15 am

    I have worn my food saver out! This ould be the perfect replacement. Have to make the tart, just can’t tell the kid what kind of cheese is in it!


  141. #
    Pauline Gudas — November 21, 2013 @ 10:14 am

    I would use it to freeze chicken and meat that I buy in bulk as well as veggies. It would save me a lot of money

    Athena R — November 22, 2013 @ 8:28 am

    I would use it when I do bulk cooking to help save meals for a few weeks.

    I really want one of these!!!! I registered for one when we got married but never got it. Would love to save more food. It’s just my husband and I and I hate to waste food. Love the recipe too – looking forward to trying it out.


  148. #
    Kiki C. — November 22, 2013 @ 11:58 am

    Wow, thanks for the great giveaway…..I would use this to store carrots for my dog. Yep I said dog and not horse, though my sweeet and buxom 90 pound lady labrador looks a lot like one. She’s just built that way as her mom and dad were XL, but she loves her carrots (and everything else) so we could store them in large quantities and buy in bulk!


  149. #
    Jessie C. — November 22, 2013 @ 11:05 am

    I would use it to organize freezing cooking ingredients.


  150. #
    Barbara — November 22, 2013 @ 12:27 pm

    I love the idea of having 2 weeks to use fresh herbs! I currently chop and freeze in virgin olive oil, but fresh is much better in many dishes. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Angela Arnall — November 22, 2013 @ 3:51 pm

    I just came upon your site yesterday and I cant wait to start cooking – this would be a great way to get started.

    BusyWorkingMama — November 23, 2013 @ 1:49 am

    I’d like to use it on produce from the farmer’s market.

    Nina — November 23, 2013 @ 5:18 pm

    This recipe looks wonderful. Am trying this weekend for hubby. Food Saver would be a real financial blessing in our home, allowing us to better preserve the food we purchase. Have looked at it for along time now. Thank you for making available to the lucky person and good luck to all.

    Carmen — November 23, 2013 @ 8:49 pm

    Well, I’m hoping we get some venison this weekend – I could use it to freeze that. Otherwise we save money by buying family packs at the grocery store and repackaging in our family-sized amounts!
