Root Vegetable and Goat Cheese Tart Recipe


For the pastry dough

Cut cold butter into small dice, keeping the 2 sticks separated from the ½  stick.

Place flour & salt into bowl of the food processor, pulse once or twice until incorporated.  Add the ½ stick of butter, pulse until combined.  Continually add butter one piece at a time while pulsing. Add water & pulse until a dough ball has formed.

Scrape dough from food processor on to a floured surface, roll dough into a large rectangle, then fold in half.  Roll dough again into a large triangle, then fold again.  Repeat 2 more times, wrap in plastic wrap, refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 425.

In a large bowl, mix together vegetables, oil, salt & thyme.  Roast in a single layer on sheet pans for about 35 minutes until tender, stirring every 10 minutes. Set aside to cool. 
Once cooled, mix with goat cheese & garlic.

Divide pastry dough into 8 pieces. Roll into a square. Cut slits into the corners.  Spoon mixture into the middle and roll up each side. Brush exposed dough with egg wash.  
Bake on parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets for 20 minutes until golden brown.
