Angela Hartnett's watercress and goat's cheese tart recipe - The Guardian

Celebrate the fact that spring has sprung with some fresh watercress, which is just coming into season. If goat's cheese is not your thing, a good cheddar or blue will work just as well. The most important thing to get right with a tart is the pastry – too often it's soggy and the ruin of any good filling.

(Serves four to six, with salad)
300g ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
2 bunches watercress minus the large stalks, torn roughly
125g goat's cheese, rind removed
3 free-range eggs
200ml double cream
Salt and pepper

You will need a tart ring of around 8in in diameter – use one with a loose bottom, or put it on a baking tray.

Roll the pastry out to overlap the edges of the tin. Blind bake the pastry – prick the base with a fork, add some baking beans (or dried pulses or rice) to preserve the shape. Bake for 15 minutes at 180C/gas mark 4.

Remove the baking beans and cook the pastry for a further five minutes, until golden brown, then allow to cool.

Beat the eggs and cream together and season.

Steam the watercress to wilt it, dice the cheese roughly, then scatter both around the tart base and pour over enough of the egg mix to cover (we're binding the filling, not aiming for an eggy tart).

Bake in the oven at 180C/gas mark 4 for 15-20 minutes until set. Allow to cool, trim the excess pastry and serve with a green salad.
