For The Pastry:
- 140g plain flour
- 70g chilled butter, cut into dice
- 50g grated mature cheddar
- water to bind
- pinch of salt
For The Filling:
- 400g Chantenay carrots

- 200ml tub crème fraiche
- 180g goat’s cheese cut into slices
What To Do:

- Meanwhile, place the carrots on a baking sheet. Season well and drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice. Roast in the oven alongside the tart case for 15-20 minutes.
- Mix together the eggs, egg yolk and crème fraîche, and season. Then place the carrots and diced goat’s cheese in the cooked tart case, with the sprigs of fresh thyme and pour over the egg mixture.
