Our veggie deli tart is very different to a normal quiche.
Starting with a crisp thin olive oil pastry we then take the best seasonal vegetables, roast them, then add a mature west country cheddar. We then sit these on top of a mix of mature west country cheddar and Greek yoghurt.
We vary the filling seasonally, and take advantage of new season asparagus from Evesham (the home of award winning asparagus), when it's available. Ths asparagus tart also includes roasted new baby potatoes, courgette and red onion.
We can't get enough of these tarts, we love to eat them warm with minted new potatoes, or, with fries, a crisp salad and cold glass of white wine.
After purchase, store in the fridge and use within 3-4 days.
