This Red and Golden Beet Tart happens to be one of my favorite savory tarts to prepare, and to eat. The vibrant color of this tart is visually stunning and the savory and slightly sweet flavors are enchanting.
I adore beets in most any recipe, but when they’re combined with ricotta and goat cheese and then placed in a homemade crust, I find myself in a culinary induced swoon.
For me, baking feels like poetry in the kitchen. Sometimes its complex and hard to sift through, and then other times it feels beautifully melodic – transforming an afternoon into sweet or savory perfection. When it comes to making this savory tart however, I find that it feels like time well spent. Especially when my family raves about how delicious it is.
Although I list a homemade tart dough in the recipe, if I’m short on time I have no problem using a store-bought crust. I hope this doesn’t make my pastry chef friends cringe.
If I can’t find golden beets, I’ll use all red beets or maybe swap a few large roasted carrot slices to mix up the color. I love to make a meal out of this tart and serve it with a lightly dressed salad of spring greens and arugula.
This gorgeous Red and Golden Beet Tart makes a lovely brunch or lunch meal and sometimes I like to serve it as a starter for dinner guests.
However you serve this tart, I think you’ll love it so much you’ll be making it again and again.
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love!
