Yes, yes, I know: It’s December already! Winter, not autumn. But so what? Squash still tastes fantastic and I will keep making it into fabulous dishes as long as I can still find some. :-)
For example into a light and quick colourful tarte!
What you need:
- puff pastry
- 150 g goat cream cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 small squash (e.g. butternut oder hokkaido)
- thyme, pepper, salt, cinnamon
- honey and balsamic vinegar (white if possible)
- 1/4 pomegranate
- 1/2 bunch of arugula
How it works:
First you preheat the oven to 180 °C and get excited! And then you get started! Cut the squash into bite-sized pieces and glaze it with honey, balsamic vinegar, pepper, salt and cinnamon. Then you put it into the oven for roughly 25 minutes, until it is soft. Now you prepare the pastry. If you’re as lazy as me, you just buy it from the store and cut it, so that nobody will call your bluff! ;-)
The pastry can already get cozy in the oven for about 10 minutes. Prick it a few times with a fork, so that it doesn’t rise too much. In the mean time, whisk the two eggs together with 100 g of goat cream cheese and season it with pepper, salt and thyme. Put this mixture on top of the pastry and put it back into the oven for another 10 minutes, until it looks tasty.
In the mean time, the squash should be about ready and you can put it on the taste. Afterwards, decorate it with the arugula and pomegranate and a few dabs of goat cream cheese. Season the tarte to taste with more pepper, salt and thyme and ta-da – the masterpiece is complete! Enjoy!
