Delicious Artichoke & roasted red pepper puffs with manouri cheese

I was talking in my last post about all these wonderful pantry ingredients we have sitting there and they can really save the day. Best example below: artichoke & roasted red pepper puffs with manouri cheese.

Head straight to the recipe.

Amongst the many stuff that hide at the dark side of our cupboards there are always a couple of delicacies. Chargrilled artichokes & roasted peppers are some of my favourites and whilst the later stand tall, the artichokes jar is a bit shorter and easily pushed to the back. Such a delight when such treasures come hiding from the shadows.  As for the puff pastry, it is one of the basics that hides in the freezer. In plain sight. I am not always in the mood for making my own tart base you see.

This tart is as versatile as you can imagine and you can top it with anything seasonal that might be sitting in your fridge too.

Ingredients

  • 6-7 chargrilled artichokes

  • A bit of honey to gloss

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven at 180 C and start assembling the tart
  • Brush a baking tray with olive oil and arrange your puff pastry sheet. If you wish you can cut in portions before baking like I did.
  • Brush with a bit more of olive oil the puff pastry and layer on each slice a couple of artichoke pieces, some roasted red pepper, the sliced onions and top with crumbled manouri cheese. You can pass over a bit of honey with olive oil to give them a nice caramelized finish (just a tiny bit).
  • It needs around 15-20 minutes in the oven and it’s best served warm.

Notes

Feta cheese or goat's cheese are also great alternatives for this quick tart

      Glad you like it Mini! You have to find a good chargrilled artichoke to enjoy it! Thankfully nibbling is very popular and I have a couple of choices here in London. Fresh however are extremely hard to find.

    Manouri cheese makes a delicious addition to this dish. It goes so well with artichokes, too. It is definitely a classic combination and it’s worth buying the cheese whenever you can find it.
