+ Well Nourished | Heirloom Tomato and Plum Tart

Heirloom Tomato and Plum Tart

With Christmas fast approaching, this is a wonderful summertime tart I often whip up when entertaining. The combination of sweet tomatoes, plum and basil are a match made in heaven. Best of all, you can put this together so quickly and easily and it just presents beautifully.

If you are gluten or grain-free, try this as a delicious salad. The cheese is entirely optional, personally, I’m a fan of fresh goat curd or buffalo mozzarella (or bocconcini) with it.

Please just make sure when you choose a puff pastry, that it is a 100% butter puff pastry with no vegetable oils or additives. I always choose Caréme All Butter Puff Pastry.

375g sheet of all butter, puff pastry
500g (approx.) heirloom tomatoes
3 perfectly ripe plums
Approx. 100-150g Persian feta, goat feta, goat curd, buffalo mozzarella or bocconcini (optional)
Handful of small basil leaves, torn

1 tablespoon of red wine or raspberry vinegar
½ teaspoon of sea salt
60ml (4 tablespoons) extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of white pepper, ground


  1. Preheat your oven to 180℃/350℉.
  2. Defrost and cut the pastry to your desired size (I usually cut in half or quarters).
  3. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.  Using a fork, prick the pastry all over. Pop into the fridge whilst preparing your tomatoes.
  4. Halve small tomatoes and slice any large ones. Slice your plums into thin wedges.
  5. Top the pastry with another piece of baking paper and weigh it down with another tray placed on top.
  6. Bake for approx. 15 minutes or until crisp and golden.
  7. Make your dressing by mixing altogether (or shake in a small jar).
  8. Gently toss the tomatoes and plums in the dressing.
  9. Arrange over the pastry with the cheese (crumbled or torn) and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
  10. Serve immediately.

If you are entertaining, have all of the components ready to go and just assemble before serving.

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose
