AR­TI­CHOKE AND BRIE TARTS WITH PEA AND COURGETTE SALAD

Ar­ti­choke and Brie Tarts 1 ta­ble­spoon flour 250g flaky puff pas­try, de­frosted 1 egg 150g mar­i­nated ar­ti­chokes (store­bought) 1⁄4 red onion 120g brie cheese

Pea and Courgette Salad 1 cup frozen peas, de­frosted 11⁄2 tea­spoons vine­gar (e.g. red wine, white wine) 1⁄4 tea­spoon runny honey 2 cour­gettes 1⁄4 red onion 3 ta­ble­spoons mint

To serve 2 ta­ble­spoons basil pesto (store­bought)

Pre­heat oven to 200C. Line an oven tray with bak­ing pa­per. Bring a small pot of salted water to the boil. Lightly dust clean, dry bench with flour and lay pas­try sheet on top. Cut pas­try in 6 squares and trans­fer to pre­pared tray. Whisk egg in a bowl and lightly brush pas­try. Use a fork to prick pas­try in sev­eral places. Use a knife to gen­tly score a 1cm border around each piece. Pat ar­ti­chokes dry with a pa­per towel and slice larger pieces in half. Finely slice onion. Tear off small pieces of brie with your hands and dot over pas­try, leav­ing border around edge. Top with ar­ti­chokes and red onion and sea­son with pep­per. Bake for 12-15 min­utes, un­til golden. Place peas in pot of boil­ing water and cook for 2 min­utes. Drain and rinse un­der cold water to cool. In a bowl, mix a driz­zle of ex­tra-vir­gin olive oil with vine­gar and honey. Us­ing a veg­etable peeler, peel cour­gettes length­ways un­til you reach the core (dis­card core); finely slice red onion; roughly chop mint; add all to bowl with cooled peas. Toss to com­bine.
