Baby Pea, Edamame, Basil + Feta Tarts

If you’re searching for something to munch on that is bright, light, invigorating, fresh and cheesy, these lovely Baby Pea, Edamame, Basil + Feta Tarts are just the thing. Shockingly green and sweet baby peas, edamame beans, basil and little white nuggets of salty feta are delicious piled on top of crisp puff pastry. A simple, delicious, and pretty addition to any meal-time.

Good quality puff pastry

Feta cheese

Handful of fresh basil leaves

2 cups frozen baby peas, thawed

1 cup frozen edamame beans, thawed

Extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 egg, for brushing

2 cucumbers, peeled into ribbons using a vegetable peeler

Preheat oven to 200C

Cut the pastry into four equal-sized squares. Using a small knife, lightly score the edges to create a 1cm border. Place the pastry squares on a baking tray lined with baking paper and top with feta. Brush with egg yolk and pop into the preheated over for approx. 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden. Remove from oven.

In a bowl, mix together the peas, edamame beans, basil leaves and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. Toss to combine. Season to taste.

Top the tarts with the pea and edamame bean mixture and cucumber ribbons and finish with another crumbling of feta. Drizzle with a little more oil and serve.

 Makes 4 individual tarts
