  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Toss the carrots with the oil in a roasting tin in a single layer, season, then roast for 15 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, mash 50g salad cheese, the crème fraîche, garlic and most of the parsley together in a bowl; season.

  3. Unroll the pastry, still on its paper, and transfer to a baking sheet. Score a 1cm border around the edge – don’t go all the way through. Add the crème fraiche mixture and smooth out to the border using the back of a spoon. Scatter over the roasted carrots and crumble over the remaining cheese with a crack of black pepper. Bake for 20-25 mins until the pastry is golden and puffed, and dry and crisp underneath if you lift up a corner.

  4. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 15-20 mins until tender. Put the greens in a metal colander or steamer basket over the potatoes for the last 5-6 mins to steam until tender. Serve the tart scattered with the reserved parsley, with the potatoes and steamed greens.

Cook's tip: This is great for picnics – just slice, wrap and pop into your cool bag.
