{The Nest Cooks} Tomato, haloumi and olive tart

This is a cracker tart when your pantry is near empty but the tiny people are starving.

I found it also an excellent way to introduce haloumi to the kids and they love helping to make it.  tart

Stuff you need:

8 sheets filo pastry

Cooking Spray

1 tbs Almond Meal or breadcrumbs

Cherry tomatoes and roma tomato medley

Olives

1 egg, beaten

grated lemon rind

400g Ricotta

100g Haloumi grated

Oregano

 

Do this:

  1. Mix ricotta, haloumi, the lemon rind, egg and oregano in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Lay out one layer of filo pastry, spray with cooking oil, place another layer on top. Continue to use 8 pieces to make a stack.
  3. Sprinkle almond meal (or breadcrumbs to be nutfree) over top of stack (this will help stop it going soggy)
  4. Pour cheese mixture onto stack leaving about 4cm on each side
  5. Turn over sides of stack to tuck in the cheese mixture
  6. Spread tomatoes and Olives on top as desired
  7. Sprinkle a little more oregano.
  8. Brush turned up sides with egg wash or spray with cooking spray
  9. Season well
  10. Wack it in the oven for about 25 minutes on about 210
  11. Serve with salad.

Enjoy!
