I've tried all the Tesco finest tarts, but this on
I've tried all the Tesco finest tarts, but this one tops them all, the pastry is delicious, just the right amount of spice in the filling, very tasty, the chickpeas were not hard. I enjoyed every mouthful. Well done, I would buy it again.
A Pleasing New Venture
A new venture and pleasing result especially served with a fresh crunchy green salad. Perfect if directions to heat are followed - note 2mins waiting time which allows the pastry to bond a bit. Of course the pastry tasted of turmeric - that's what it said on the packet. We would have preferred it presented as 4 tartlets, thus avoiding cutting.
Lovely (not too) spicy veg flan
Loved the pastry case with turmeric, the filling just the balance of veg and sauce, not too spicy. Even my picky daughter liked it. Will definitely be buying again.
Pastry was tough- flavour of tart was ok- chickpeas like bullets. Filling poor. Very disappointing and certainly won’t be buying again . I love vegetarian food but this just failed as a tart.
Cooked correctly the tart is delicious. Unlike some of the other reviewers I didn't find the chickpeas hard, sure some where pleasantly crunchy whilst the vast bulk where 'perfectly cooked' infact the differing textures brought something to the tart. The spicing is light and the pastry nice and short, I enjoyed the tart a lot. My only wee criticism is the amount of filling is leaning a hint to the mean side.
Delicious veg tart
This tart was delicious. The pastry is lovely and crumbly and a lovely flavour. The filling has a nice delicate flavour and the addition of chickpeas is a good touch. If cooked correctly the chickpeas on ours were not like bullets as other reviewers had suggested. Will be buying again because usually veg tarts are rather boring but this was great!
Not the best.
Tasted of turmeric nothing else. Very little sauce as I could see and when cooked for 30 minutes the filling was dry and the chick peas were like bullets. Was slightly better next day with 20 mins cooking time. Pastry was quite nice despite the lurid yellow colour.
Not up to usual standard for Finest Tarts
I have been a fan of the Finest Tarts for several years and have been purchasing 2-3 each week since moving to online shopping in 2020 (Cheese & Onion, Butternut or Goats Cheese). This new Spiced Vegetable Tart sounded promising. However, it is not up to the usual standard I have come to expect from this range. (1) the chickpea mixture within the tart dries when cooked and any chickpeas not covered in the sauce become very hard and unpalatable. (2) whilst I am a big fan of curries and spice, this contains too much curry powder without a balancing taste (a bit like the packet of curry powder fell into the mixture). We had to open the window to lessen the smell (and we don't usually need to do this when cooking curries). PLEASE bring back the Butternut Tart - very nice and good choice if wanting to eat vegetarian.
