8 servings


2 hours 15 minutes

total time


500g pack all-butter shortcrust pastry

flour , for dusting

1 aubergine , cut into 2.5cm

1 courgette , thickly sliced

1 yellow pepper , deseeded and cut into strips

1 red onion , thickly sliced

3 large garlic cloves , unpeeled

3 tbsp olive oil

250g cherry plum tomato

300ml pot double cream

3 eggs

½ small bunch basil , leaves only, plus a few extra leaves to serve

150g pack hard goat's cheese

handful toasted pine nuts (optional)


Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the aubergine, courgette, pepper and onion together with the garlic, olive oil and some seasoning. Tip onto a large baking tray (you may need to use 2 trays) and roast for 20 mins. Toss through the tomatoes and roast for a further 15-20 mins or until the vegetables are tender and beginning to caramelise.

Meanwhile, roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin. Chill for 30 mins.

While the vegetables cool, reduce oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Prick the base of the tart case with a fork, line with baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Pop on a baking tray and bake for 15 mins, then remove the beans and parchment. Bake for 10-15 mins more until the pastry is lightly golden.

Reduce oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Squeeze the garlic from their skins into a jug and mash with a little salt to form a paste. Slowly whisk in the cream, followed by the eggs and some seasoning. Toss the basil through the cooled vegetables, then tip two-thirds into the pastry case, spreading out to an even layer. Crumble over three-quarters of the goat’s cheese, then pour over the cream mix. Top with the remaining veg and cheese. Bake for 40-50 mins until the tart is just set, with a slight wobble in the centre. Serve warm for lunch or cold on a picnic, scattered with extra basil leaves, and some toasted pine nuts, if you like.
