Beetroot, Celery & Pear Tart - Culinarty Round-Up

It is time again for the Original Recipe Event launched by Lore from Culinarty. Since days I knew exactly what I am going to prepare, however I was not sure at all if it is going to be tasty.

I had all ingredients at home: a piece of celery left from the soup I cooked yesterday, one pear from the saffron pears I prepared lately, a half pack of grated almonds, half cup of yoghurt, a piece of smoked cheese. However using only these ingredients it would have been totally bland. That is why I thought to bring some colour to it in a form of a beetroot. My experiment turned to be a light and tasty lunch!

150 g flour
3.5 g dry yeast

40 g butter
60 ml milk
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beetroot

1 small celery
1 pear
250 ml yoghurt

1 egg
50 g grated almond
100 g smoked cheese
juice of 1 lemon
nutmeg, lemon pepper

salt, pepper

Knead a dough out of flour, dry yeast, butter, lukewarm milk, salt and sugar. Set aside for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°C. Slice celery, pear and beetroot with a help of a mandoline. Sprinkle lemon juice over the pear. Butter a tart form and put rolled out dough into it. Place sliced veggies and fruit in it and add mixed yoghurt with egg, almond and spices. Add grated smoked cheese on top and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Chriesi I'm in awe! This is definitely a UNIQUE masterpiece judging by the ingredients and how great it looks (love that pink touch!). I know from personal experience that celery and beets are a great pairing and by adding pear and smoked cheese this must have been incredibly flavourful and well balanced.
Thanks for sending it my way :)
