Might I suggest you try baking this Tomato Goat Cheese tart if you want to achieve the following:
1. The incredible feeling of goat cheese crumbling through your fingers, and the inevitable chance at licking up the traces left behind
2. The incredible smells that waft from your oven as this here tart bakes
3. The incredible joy when you see how beautifully it turns out–no one could ever know by looking at it how simple the recipe really is!
4. The incredible sense of relief when you finally dig in and find out its even better than you imagined it sounded
…and yes, all of the above will happen, in said order, when you create Ina Garten, the loverly Barefoot Contessa’s, Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart.
After seeing Ina make it on Wednesday, I just had to have it on Thursday, and happened to have most, if not all the fixings available on hand in fridge, freezer and cubbard.
The goat cheese in this dish is warmed perfectly and melts in your mouth, the tomatos burst under the heat of the oven, and the cooked to nothingness sweet onions are so flavorful thanks to splashes of kosher salt, white wine, thyme, and basil.
Please, please! If you’re looking for a vegetarian option at dinnertime, a light bit of fare, or a scrumptious appetizer for any party….make this. It’s almost too simple to know how to handle it.
