Savory Carrot & Tarragon Tart

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (42 votes)

The bright orange carrots in this savory tart are a feast for the eyes and the palate. Tarragon lends bold flavor to the tart. Other herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, would be delicious too.

standard fare at our house

I make this often. Instead of taragon I use oregano and I also use rice vinegar instead. Just because this is what I have on hand all the time. You can also play around with the cheese. Never fails!

inexpensive, easy, tasty

I make this every year and my 11 year old LOVES it. I've made some variations but it's easily become one of our go-to dishes for potlucks and chilly autumn/winter nights. (I add extra mustard)

Easy and Delicious for a Potluck

This tart was surprisingly easy to make, considering how professional it looks and how delicious it tastes. However, the my husband was lukewarm. "It was better than I thought a carrot tart would be." (He also resists carrot cake; vegetables have their place, and it's not in cakes or tarts--whether savory or sweet.) He wouldn't let me take it to his club's potluck.

Easy, Delicous, Impressive looking

I used the crust recipe for a savory free-form tart- with roasted butternut squash, caramelized onions, sauteed spinach, and goat cheese- and was so pleased with how delicious the crust was. I subbed sage for tarragon as I wanted that flavor to complement the squash. In any case, I'll definitely be using the crust again soon!

Really delicious and easy. Paired it with a salad for lunch and it was perfect.
