Goat Cheese Tomato Tarts

Snacks > Keto Recipes

When company is coming over and I want to keep all of the recipes I prepare ketogenic, I try to go above and beyond to make things that I normally wouldn’t. I like to make things that impress people so that they don’t have the wrong idea about this diet. Many people who know me always think that my diet is extremely restrictive, but this is my moment where I show them I can make anything they could – and probably even better.

Putting that extra bit of work in to impress people not only helps others come around to this way of eating, but also shows that you’re serious enough to go through the trouble of making great food just for them. And what better way to do it than with a delicious ketogenic Goat Cheese Tomato Tart?

GoatCheeseTartsSecond

I know it’s a lot of work to make only 12 tarts but you could easily double the recipe to double the amount of tarts you get, or slice the ingredients thinner to make more. They’re well worth the effort, though – everything comes together perfectly! The roasted tomato and caramelized onion adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the tangy goat cheese, the crumbly tart dough is just enough to make you want to take another bite, and the fresh thyme gives a pop of fresh flavors that its missing.

If you’d like to have your tarts go the extra length, slice tomatoes into 1/8″ slices and bake for slightly less time. When you are pressing the dough into the silicone cupcake molds, make the tarts quite thin – about 1/4″ or less. This should give you a total of about 18 tarts, rather than 12.

Yields 12 Goat Cheese Tomato Tarts

The Preparation

Roasted Tomatoes

  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Tart Base

Tart Filling

  • ½ medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons fresh thyme

The Execution

1. Preheat oven to 425°F, then slice 2 medium tomatoes into ¼” slices. You should get at least 6 slices per tomato.

2. Lay slices on a baking sheet with parchment paper, then drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Poke the tomatoes using tooth picks so that the juice can run out of the tomatoes and not cause a “steaming” effect.

3. Bake the tomatoes for 30-40 minutes or until they are roasted and have lost most of their juice.

9. Reduce oven heat to 350F and bake the tarts at 350F for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown.

10. Remove tarts from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, turn the silicone cupcake molds upside down and lightly tap the bottom so that the tart dough falls out.

11. Layer tomato onto each tart and set aside for a moment.
