This seductive tarte is an all year round climate favourite. This is because carrots as a main ingredient are available all year round either through fresh harvest or existing locally kept carrot stock. But this isn’t the only reason why this tarte is suitable all year round, it fits right in with any season since its texture is neither too heavy nor too light and thus makes for a delicious happiness inducing dish. The basis of this recipe is derived from a vegetable rich in Vitamin A baken in the oven in the form of a Tarte Tatin. The final touch and raciness of this dish is achieved by adding caramelised sugar combining it with the slightly sour taste of the cottage cheese and fresh chervil.

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven at 220°C (fan). Roll out the pastry and pinch with a fork several times. Trim baking paper to the size of the pastry. Place onto the baking tray and sprinkle sugar evenly.

2. Whilst you preheat the oven, cut carrots into strips of 1-2cm in size (usually means cutting them into halves or quarters). Arrange carrots in a single layer on the pastry (adjust length) leaving a rim of 1-2cm.

3. As soon as the oven is hot, caramelise the sugar for 5-7 minutes placing it on the middle rail. In the meantime, chop the chervil with stem. Mix one third of the chopped chervil with cottage cheese and pepper in a small bowl. Weigh butter and cut into thin slices.

4. Remove caramelised sugar from the oven and spread sliced butter evenly on top. with a knife. Now transfer the sorted carrots from the pastry onto the baking tray, sprinkle with salt and one third of the herbs. Place pastry over the top tucking in the carrots as you go. Bake until golden for 20 – 25 minutes on the lowest rail in the oven.

5. Remove from the oven and invert onto a serving plate. Garnish with the rest of the herbs, serve with cottage cheese.
