Sweet Eve Strawberry, Goat’s Cheese and Black Pepper Tart

There is a theory that peppercorns really bring out the flavours of strawberries and I agree. This is a lovely combination, especially when paired with goats cheese. Plus it's a really interesting dish to bring out for vegetarian guests too. I like to serve these tarts with a green salad - Sophie Michell

  • Prep Time 20
  • Cook Time 40
  • Serves 4


1 packet of frozen short crust pastry
400g Sweet Eve strawberries
1 tsp of cracked black pepper
1 sprig of rosemary
400g goats’ cheese log (large)
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas mark 6. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, then cut out a circle big enough to fit each mini tin. Press down into the corners and blind bake the pastry for 20-30 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
Hull and halve the Sweet Eve strawberries and mix in a bowl with the black pepper. Chop the rosemary and mix with the Sweet Eve strawberries.
When the tart cases are ready, spoon in the Sweet Eve strawberries and then add a slice of goats’ cheese on top of each one. Place the tarts back in the oven for 10 minutes.
