Red Carrot Savory Tart with Goat Cheese & Herbs

Cooking Times

Ready in: 1 hour
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4 - 6


  • 1 lb. Cal-Organic Red Bunch Carrots
  • 1 shallot, peeled and halved
  • 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1 tbsp. thyme, leaves picked
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 (8.65 oz.) package puffed pastry, thawed
  • 1 (4 oz.) log goat cheese, room temperature
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. chopped Cal-Organic Italian Parsley


  1. Wash and scrub red carrots clean, then halve lengthwise.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
  3. Place the carrots, shallot and garlic on one baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with the thyme leaves, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper and red pepper flakes. Toss so that everything is coated. Roast until vegetables are starting to soften and brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  4. While the carrots are roasting, roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface to a 12-inch by 9-inch rectangle, then place the rectangle on the other lined baking sheet. Brush the puff pastry with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Once the vegetables are cooked and slightly cooled, peel and crush the garlic and add it to a bowl with the cheeses and a pinch of salt; mix until completely combined. Spread the cheese mixture over the puff pastry, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Arrange the carrots and shallots lengthwise on top of the cheese mixture. Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, 15-20 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley, slice and serve warm or room temperature.
