  • 3 cups cherry/baby plum tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • Small handful of fresh oregano leaves

  1. Preheat the oven to 120˚C. 
  2. Roasting the tomatoes. Place all cherry tomatoes onto a baking tray, cut side up and slow roast for 2 hours.
  3. Prepping the pastry. Meanwhile, line a tart tin, trimming off any excess pastry. Prick the centre of the pastry with a fork a good few times and brush the exterior pastry border with egg wash. Spread Azada’s pre-made Black Olive Pate with Chilli thinly within the inner circle – avoid getting any on the border. Arrange the Goat’s cheese on top of the pate followed by sprinkling of the Parmesan cheese, then place the roasted tomatoes on top. Season with a pinch of sea salt and a generous sprinkling of black pepper and roast in the oven at 180˚C until the pastry is cooked on the bottom and golden brown around the edges (for about 15 minutes). Serve warm with shavings of fresh Parmesan and a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar.


  • If you want a little more greens in your pastry, you can use Cavolo nero and Swiss chard. Cook the leaves in boiling water and tip them into a large sieve or colander and drain for 20 minutes before adding them to the filling.
