Step 1

Prepare the pastry:
Place the flour in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and the softened butter cut into pieces. Crumble with your fingertips. Make a well and place the egg yolk in the centre. Mix again with your fingers, kneading the flour from the outside inwards. Add water and form a ball. Knead the dough by flattening it with the palm of your hand. Make a ball again and wrap in clingfilm and leave to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge. After this time, roll out the pastry and line the tin. Put it in the fridge while preparing the rest of the recipe.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C. In a bowl, start by beating lightly the four whole eggs, then add the full fat single cream. Rinse the tuna and pat dry on kitchen roll. Then flake with a fork and add to the bowl. Add salt and pepper and mix well.

Step 3

Plunge the whole tomatoes in hot water for 5 minutes. Cool them in cold water and remove the skin. Cut them into quarters, remove the seeds and all the juice. You must only keep the pulp. Place this tomato pulp on kitchen roll. Then start to line the tin with the tomato pulp, salt and pepper. Cut the cheese into slices and spread over the tart. Then place the cherry tomatoes between every slice of cheese. Add the egg mixture and cream (step 2) poured evenly over the tart.

Step 4

Bake at 200 °C for 40 minutes. When baked, remove from the oven and leave to cool a few minutes before removing from the tin.

Serve with a green salad with walnut oil and balsamic vinegar. Bon appetit!
