I wanted to use the remains of the blanched Romanesco cauliflower (from the macaroni cheese) for a 'Feta and Black Olive Tart', but I had no feta cheese in my fridge, so it had to be made with the blue cheese.
Ah it was okay, the rest of it will be eaten during the week when the hungry pang strikes.
Romanesco Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Tart
For the shortcrust pastry - follow here for the pastry recipe.
Blind bake the pastry tart tin and set aside.
Serves 4 – 6
Ingredients for the filling
250g - 300g Romanesco Cauliflower florets, blanched, drained and set aside
2 eggs, beaten
100g - 120g blue cheese, crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.
In a measuring jug, add the milk, and beat eggs, about 80g of the blue cheese and season with pepper and a little salt to taste.
Spread the blanched cauliflower florets on the bottom of the tart. Pour over the liquid mixture, then top with remaining cheese and bake in the oven for 35–40 minutes, until set and a little golden on top. Easy as that.
