This elegant savoury tart is an impressive dish to serve at a brunch or lunch. Use store-bought puff pastry and load it up with creamy Camembert cheese and tender broccolini.

Yield: Serves 8.



  • 3 cups sliced broccolini (1 inch)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 pkg frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup cubed trimmed camembert cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil.
  2. Cook broccolini in boiling salted water for 3 minutes or just until tender crisp; drain. Cool immediately in ice water; drain. Pat broccolini dry with paper towels. Combine broccolini, green onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into a 10 inch square. Place on prepared pan. Spoon broccolini mixture onto pastry, leaving a 1/2 inch border of pastry uncovered on all edges. Sprinkle cheese cubes over broccolini mixture. Whisk together egg and sour cream. Drizzle egg mixture evenly over broccolini mixture and cheese cubes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Bake until set and pastry is golden brown, about 30 - 35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces and place on individual serving plates. Serve immediately.
