Ratatouille Filo Tart

While we’ve been on the Hairy Bikers’ diet we’ve occasionally been allowed to use a few sheets of filo pastry but always end up with some leftover and I’m not always sure how to make something low-calorie with the pastry. Tonight I decided to try a roasted vegetable tart and while searching for recipes I came across this one from Jamie Oliver for a spinach tart. I had already bought the veggie ingredients, so I decided to use the idea of wrapping up the filling in pastry, and make a veggie, ratatouille tart.

To keep it low-calorie I used v little oil when frying the veggies and then just added a can of chopped tomatoes, a tsp of paprika and lots of black pepper. To give the tart an extra kick of flavour I spread a tsp of pesto across the tart base before adding the filling.

I then cooked it at about 180-190 degrees for 20 minutes until the pastry turned golden brown and crispy!

I used courgettes, red onions, red pepper, and aubergine, mixed with chopped tomatoes and paprika to make the filling

Thinly spread pesto adds some extra flavour to the dish

The pastry should be golden and crisp, and make a nice crunchy sound as you cut in to it
