Here a very thin, crisp pastry case is filled with a creamy orange-flavoured filling – a delicious light alternative to pastry cream – and covered with luscious strawberries and blueberries. A sweet glaze is the finishing touch.
For a raspberry and peach tart, flavour the soft cheese with 1–2 tsp rosewater and 1 tbsp caster sugar instead of the honey and orange juice. Replace the strawberries and blueberries with 125 g (4½ oz) raspberries (or tayberries) and 3 ripe peaches, cut into neat slices. Glaze with melted apricot jam. * For a mango and passion fruit tart, flavour the soft cheese with the sieved pulp of 2 passion fruit instead of the orange zest and juice. Replace the strawberries and blueberries with 1 large ripe mango, cut into neat slices, and glaze with melted apricot jam. Mango is a good source of vitamin A as beta-carotene, and the riper the fruit, the higher the vitamin A content. Antioxidant nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C protect the body against free radicals, and the need for these nutrients is further increased when people are exposed to environmental pollutants and smoking.
Strawberries and blueberries are rich sources of vitamin C. * Reduced-fat soft cheese provides essential nutrients like protein and calcium with less fat and fewer calories.
