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!

Whoohoo!

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.

7 WEEKS, GUYS!

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

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Goat Cheese Red Pepper Tart

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  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.

    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!

    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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.

    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.
