Preparation

  • Blanch the green beans briefly (6 min) until they are al dente.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse and drain the corn and chickpeas. Then, mix them in a bowl with some oil, dried thyme, and paprika. Season with salt.
  • Mix the crème fraîche with salt and pepper and the grated cheese.
  • Roll out the puff pastry on a baking sheet, turning up the edges by half a centimeter all around. Spread the crème fraîche over it.
  • Spread the corn-chickpea mix over the bottom of the puff pastry; this is your soil. Use the green beans for the flower stems and the basil leaves for the petals. Create flowers from onions, cherry tomatoes, and/or radishes as desired.
  • Bake the Easter sheet cake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until the puff pastry is crunchy and lightly coloured.
  • Your Easter vegetable tart is ready to be served
