    The pastry for this recipe is enough for 2 savoury tarts. You can freeze the second pastry unrolled. Or roll it out and place it in the tart tin and freeze it in the tin. Then all you need to do next time is fill it. - For the goat cheese, if you can find it, use a mixture of goat cheese with herbs and plain goats cheese

    2. Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a large (28cm) tart or quiche tin with greaseproof paper.
    3. Divide the pastry in half. Freeze one half or make two tarts, doubling the filling. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured work surface and line the bottom and sides of the tart tin with it. Cut off any excess pastry. Cover with greaseproof paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
    5. Cut tomatoes in half and place on the prebaked pastry with the cut side down.
    6. Cover with slices of goat cheese and scatter spring onions and rosemary on top.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for 30 minutes. The goat cheese should have melted.
    8. Drizzle the hot tart with lemon and thinly brush the cheese with mustard. Sprinkle with a little fleur de sel on the tomatoes and serve.
