Ingredients

  • 1 Puff Pastry sheet
  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 4 ounces Gruyere cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup roasted tomatoes or red peppers in oil, optional from deli section in store

Instructions

Roasted Chiles

  • Heat oven on medium broil. Place the poblano chiles on the top rack and turn every 3 minutes until each side of the peppers have a nice char, this takes about 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place in a bowl and cover for 10 minutes. 
  • Once the peppers have set, cut top off and remove stem and seeds. 
    Then gently pull of the skin. Cut the pepper into thin slices.

Tart

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Place the puff pastry on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. 
  • Sprinkle 2/3 of the Gruyere cheese over the puff pastry sheet. Making sure to cover it all evenly.  Top with peppers and tomatoes.
  • Place the sheet in the oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown puffy.
  • When you remove the sheet, the pastry will be super puffy. But it will quickly deflate. No worries! It’s still delicious. Slice it into squares and serve. 
  • You can add salt and pepper if you feel that you need it, but I think the Gruyere cheese is salty enough. You can also drizzle a balsamic glaze on top if desired, for some tart sweetness.
  • Pair with a sweet wine like Sutter Home’s Moscato or Pink Moscato.
