End-of-season tomato recipe: how to prepare the Tatin tart?
Let's get into the preparation process. Start by washing the tomatoes and cutting them in half. Heat a pan with a drizzle of olive oil and place the tomatoes in it. Cook them for 10 minutes over medium heat. While the tomatoes are cooking, peel and press the garlic and add it to the pan along with the thyme. Flip the tomatoes over and let them cook uncovered for five minutes, and then covered for another five minutes. Once the tomatoes are ready, add the balsamic vinegar and let it reduce for about two minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
When it comes to cooking the tart, begin by preheating the oven to 180°C with the fan on. Take a tart mold and place the tomatoes, rounded side facing up, in it. Cover the tomatoes with the puff pastry, trimming the edges if necessary. Transfer the tart to the middle rack of the oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until the pastry is slightly golden. Once the tart is cooked, remove it from the oven and place a plate on top of the mold. Now comes a key step in making the Tatin tart: flip the tart upside down onto the plate. Voila! Your Tomato Tatin tart is ready to be enjoyed!
