Yield: 6 servings
2 Tbsp crème fraîche (optional)
2 Tbsp grainy mustard
A few handfuls of grated gruyere cheese
About 3 tomatoes, cored and sliced
Salt and pepper
A handful of chopped, fresh thyme or dried herbes de Provence
Olive oil or melted butter, for drizzling
1. Heat the oven to 400°F/200ºC.
2. Stir together the cream and mustard, and smear over the tart base (see "Savoury Pastry" recipe). Sprinkle cheese and lay the tomato slices on top. Season with salt and pepper, and scatter over the herbs.
3. Drizzle over the olive oil. Bake until the cheese has melted, and the tomatoes are hot and soft. Serve warm.
