Carrot Tart with Ricotta and Feta
Recipe by Sue Li, Photography by Thaya Williams
- Flour, for rolling out dough
- 1 (14-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 pound multicoloured carrots, scrubbed and sliced lengthwise into ¼ inch thick pieces
- 1 tablespoon O-Live Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for serving
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- 8 ounces ricotta
- 4 ounces feta, crumbled
- 1 garlic clove, grated
- Chopped fresh parsley, chervil or chives, for garnish
Heat oven to 425 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into a 10-by14-inch rectangle. Using a paring knife, lightly score a border around the perimeter of the puff pastry about ¼ inch away from the edges. Place puff pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet and prick the inside of the borer using a fork to prevent puffing in the center. Bake on top rack until puff pastry is lightly golden, about 20 minutes. Remove from the over and let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, toss carrots with 1 tablespoon O-Live & Co Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, season generously with salt and pepper and spread into a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast carrots on the bottom rack (underneath the puff pastry) until the edges are golden brown and carrots are still crisp-tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
While puff pastry and carrots are in the oven, blend ricotta, feta and garlic in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the cheese mixture onto the puff pastry up to the border and arrange the carrots in a single layer on top. Bake until the carrots are tender and the edges of the cheese mixture are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
Drizzle with O-Live & Co Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle with herbs before serving.
