Fresh and intense spring flavors
It’s getting warmer and everything is starting to bloom around here, which is really lovely. This also means it’s wild garlic season: wild garlic is quite popular in Austria and this time of the year you can get virtually anything with wild garlic. Personally, I’m much a fan of tartes / quiches, because I just love buttery shortcrust pastry 🙂 Therefore, I thought it would be nice to have a wild garlic tart. I added goat cheese, which goes very well with wild garlic and cheddar and some potatoes at the bottom to add additional texture. The wild garlic custard is really creamy, so you’re in for an awesome springtime dish.
There are two options for the shortcrust pastry: either follow the recipe below and make it yourself or just use store bought one if you have little time. If you use store bought dough, just skip the first step and go straight to 2. Regarding the goat cheese: depending on your preference choose the intensity of the cheese. However, I recommend you use a stronger one.
Now imagine scrumptuous, buttery shortcrust pastry, creamy goat cheese, a hint of fresh lemon and intense wild garlic. Sounds good, right? So get ready for an incredibly delicious (and unfortunately, very smelly 😉 ) springtime treat! Continue reading
