A Lidl surprise!

December 12, 2014


So I'm not one to be a supermarket snob...but, I have to put my hands up and say that until recently I had actually never been into a Lidl!

If you need to send abusive messages, it's ok, I put my hands up!


So after a most fruitful shop and inspired to cook a special but ever so quick lunch, here is my Lidl surprise!


All you need for the tart is:


1 roll of savoury puff pastry

1 roll of President goats cheese

1 pack of smoked bacon lardons

a few pieces of any blue cheese

fresh thyme

3 raw beetroots

Salt & pepper & oil oil


Pre-heat the oven to 190c.


On an oven tray, roll out the pastry and cook blind for 10 mins


Slice the beetroot & goats cheese, and arrange on the pastry. Sprinkle with blue cheese, bacon & thyme. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper and bake until the goats cheese bubbles!


I am always one to save on washing up, so I just half a cucumber and one carrot, used a veg peeler to create ribbons, dressed the salad and then piled it on top! Washing up saved!


Let it cool for 5 mins and then add the salad.


This tart would serve 4 as a starter. If you don't add the bacon, this tart makes a great starter for vegetarians at Christmas too.
