Savory Peach Tart

Savory Peach Tart

(Recipe from Jennifer at Natural Things Foods Store)

Peaches do not seem to need a recipe. You just eat them! But I admit to enjoying with relish a good peach cobbler. We often only associate fruits with sweet desserts, but I wanted to create a savory one instead. Not that it doesn’t have its share of sweetness, but it is balanced with savory flavors, too. I make a version of this in the fall with figs, but peaches seemed perfect for a summer dish.

Ingredients

  • 3 large peaches
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • handful of arugula leaves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out thawed puff pastry sheet. Place into a shallow dish and press into the edges.
  2. Beat egg and brush liberally over the puff pastry. Sprinkle arugula leaves on top of egg.
  3. Peel and slice peaches into 1/4 inch slices. Lay over top of arugula leaves. Drizzle honey over the peaches (warm honey slightly if needed to get it flowing). Sprinkle with a touch of sea salt.
  4. Finely chop the fresh rosemary and sprinkle over the tart.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Puff pastry will be golden brown and peaches will be tender. Cool slightly, but serve warm.
