Caprese tartlets (vegetarian)











 Here  are a simple,easy and delicious recipe. Enjoy the  combination of tomato, basil pesto and fresh ricotta on a home made pastry along with those little pieces of tomatos that complement the delicious result.
 Top with a fragrant fresh basil leaf and indulge.
I think in this like a entree or a lunch to any day!


This recipe is from Pia Fendrik (argentinian chef) that I have made some recipes.
The little book is "Cocina para dos" (Cooking for two)


Ingredients (4 servings)

1 dough recipe (see below)
(anyway you can use some freeze dough if you want)
3 eggs
4 tablespoons of ricotta
4 tablespoon of cream
4 tablespoon of mozarella cheese  
4 tablespoons parmesan cheese
Fresh basil to put inside and garnish
4 tomatos slices
salt and pepper

Tartlets dough
200 grams all purpose flour
80 grams butter
1 teaspoon of salt
1 egg
a little cold water

method


Place in a bowl the flour, cubed butter and salt.
Working with a fork mix the ingredients until you have a crumble dough like sand.
Add the egg and cold water.
Mix well until a smooth dough. (if needed you can add more flour)
Wrap in plastic film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Use following the recipe.

Make the caprese tartlets





Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut 4 discs of dough depending if use ramekins or molds like these tarts.
(These disks of dough can be frozen without problem (put spacers between each) last two months)

Cover the pans with foil over the dough and putting up some beans.
This prevents the dough out of shape during cooking.
Place in the oven at 180 ° C for about 10-15 minutes. Remove the paper and beans and set aside.

Filling

In a bowl mix the eggs with the ricotta, cream, cheese and some chopped basil.
Season with salt and pepper.
Fill the tart shells with this mixture and add a slice of tomato in the center.
Back to oven (180 °) for about 18 minutes.
They will be lightly browned and slightly up.
Serve warm or hot.
Garnish with basil.

Tartas Caprese











Pensé en estas tartaletas caprese como una entrada  para cualquier tiempo u ocasión pero tambien sirven para un lunch liviano.
Para los que estamos en verano está saliendo la albahaca.
Esta que ocupé es de unos pequeños maceteros que tengo. ocupé las hojas que tenía.
Pero tambien en los supermercados ya se puede encontrar albahaca.

Esta receta es de Pia Fendrick una chef argentina de la que ya he hecho algunas recetas.
Tienen un libro que se llama cocina para dos.
me gusta porque las cantidades son como para dos o tres personas.
(Si se tienen que hacer más se doblan las cantidades.

Ingredientes (4 tartaletas)

1 receta de masa para tartaletas
(la pondré a continuación)
3 huevos
4 cucharadas de ricotta
4 cucharadas de crema
4 cucharadas de queso mozarella rallado (u otro)
albahaca fresca o congelada
4 rodajas de tomate
sal
pimienta

Masa para tartaletas (se puede congelar guardar con separadores hasta 6 meses)

200 grs. de harina
80 grs. de mantequilla o margarina
1 cucharadita de sal
1 huevo
un poco de agua fría
(salen 6 tartaletas)

En un bol poner la harina, mantequila en cubos y
la sa. Trabajar estos ingredientes con un tenedor hasta que la masa tenga una consistencia migosa.
Agregar el huevo y el agua fría de a poco hasta que se tenga una masa suave pero que no se pegue en los dedos.
Envolver en papel plástico transparente y llevar al refrigerador por 30 minutos.
Utilizar segun indique la receta.

Preparación

Estirar la masa sobre una superficie ligeramente enharinada y cortar 4 discos del porte de los moldes o ramekins que se van a usar, forrar con ellos los moldes.
Cubrir las masa con papel aluminio y rellenar con porotos o garbanzos, esto es para que la masa no pierda la forma.
Hornear a 180°c durante unos 10 minutos.
Retirar el papel y los porotos o garbanzos.
(Se pueden guardar en un frasco (los porotos y dejar para usar algunas veces más)
Relleno
Mezclar los huevos con la ricotta, la crema, los quesos y la albahaca picada.Condimentar con sal y pimienta.
Rellenar las tartaletas con esta prepáración y disponer una rodaja de tomate en el centro.
Llevar nuevamente a horno (180°) durante 15 a 20 minutos cuando se vena listos.

    1. Cierto Pamela por eso me he ido acostumbrando cada vez más a recetas vegetarianas porque aunque solo tengo dos hijos una es vegetariana y el otro ama la carne, la mayoría de las veces yo como lo mismo que la Espe o si hacemos fiseos ella se prepara su salsa con carne de soya, tengo otras recetas ojalá alcanze a hacerlas antes de Navidad un abrazo!
