    Used a 20cm round tart tin, lined the removable base with baking paper, no fresh thyme so used dried, and WOW - AWESOME!!

    Will be making this again for sure.

    Served it with a simple spinach, rocket, diced beetroot (yes, tinned), feta salad with a caramelised balsamic glaze (made in Thermie), and this was restaurant quality.

  • 3.5/4 Stars - it was a lovely

    3.5/4 Stars - it was a lovely tart but not sure if we will cook this again? The pastry came out really nice and was quite easy, but the filling took a little longer to cook through. The filling wasn't quite our taste I think, although everyone ate it tmrc_emoticons.)
