- 7 sheets of filo pastry
- 8 plum tomatoes
- 1/4 of a cup of crumbled feta
- 1 tsp of chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tsp of chopped fresh rosemary
- 5 tbsp of Olive Oil
- 1/4 tsp of kosher salt
Step 1- We think this recipe is the perfect way to celebrate British tomato week! Start by preheating your oven to 190 degrees Celsius/375 degrees Fahrenheit. Unroll the filo pastry sheets and cover with kitchen towel. Take a baking sheet and brush with olive oil and place a sheet of the filo pastry on the baking sheet before brushing with more olive oil. Top with another sheet of filo pastry and again brush with olive oil. Repeat this process until all the filo pastry has been used.
Step 2-Take the slices of plum tomato and arrange on top of the filo pastry in a single layer. Ensure that you leave about ¼ of an inch gap around the edge of the pastry.
Step 3- Add the feta cheese over the top, along with the chopped thyme and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle any olive oil that is left over the top.
Step 4-Place in the oven and bake for around 30 minutes. You will know when the tart is done as the pastry will turn a delicious golden brown colour and the edges will start to crisp. Allow the Tomato Filo Tart to cool for 5 minutes before cutting in to a dozen pieces or so to serve. Now all there is left to do is enjoy a piece of this fantastic Tomato Filo Tart!
