Beetroot and Carrot Tart With RicottaMake on Drop
I love my vegetarian dishes...don't you? This one is super pretty and very festive so suitable for any occasion that requires you to feed both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian something hearty, filling but also elegant. This goes perfectly well with a green salad for lunch or use it for dinner and serve it up with a truck load of steamed veggies.
It is also fantastic cold the next day. But you may never find that out as it is so good hot! Enjoy!

Line a baking tray with baking paper, roll out the puff into a large rectangle and place on the tray. Bake 20 minutes until puffed and lightly golden.
Place lemon zest, provolone, garlic and thyme into Thermomix bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 8.
Add ricotta, egg yolks, half of the lemon juice and seasonings and mix 6 sec/speed 3.
