Roasted Grape and Rosemary Savory Goat Cheese Mini Tarts {Grain-Free}

Roasted Grape and Rosemary Savory Goat Cheese Mini Tarts {Grain-Free}

For me, I really don’t think there can ever be too much of the good things in life. Whether that be the grapes growing on the vines in our yard or the incredible lady friends I have met through blogging. I just can’t get enough of either these days.


When my girls Gina of So Let’s Hangout and Emily of The Pig and Quill invited me to be a part of #soletspigout, their virtual summer potluck – I just couldn’t say no! I mean what I would really love is to hang out with all of these fantastic bloggers in person, in the real life – stuffing our faces with food and chatting it up about blogging and all the weird things we do. But, I suppose this is the next best thing – virtual food with virtual friends. All of the fun, none of the calories?

In honor of #soletshangout, all week long these two adorably charming, witty gals have been serving up some tantalizing dishes for their weeklong fest! They’ve shared Sticky BBQ Korean Chicken Wings, Fizzy Herbed Pineapple Limeade, Grilled Thai Beef Salad With Sesame Lime Vinaigrette, Sinless Superfood Devil’s Food Donuts and Grain-Free Stone Fruit Cobbler with Lime Coconut Cream. Phew – are you drooling, yet?

Oh and to see all the fun surround this potluck, be sure to check out the hashtag #soletspigout on Instagram.

When it came time to decide what I would be bringing to this virtual get-together today, with 20+ other food-obsessed bloggers, I knew immediately I would have to bring something that included grapes! If you haven’t heard me mention already here on the blog or on my social media, I am literally overwhelmed by the amount of fresh grapes we are getting from the grape vines we have here at our house.

I have been picking them by the 5 and 10 pound bags. No joke. I’ve been forced to get super creative with all of these grapes, which I have actually been loving and I hope you have been, too! (Did you see this Red Grape and Goat Cheese Salad with Walnuts or the Bacon Roasted Grape Salad?) That said, I have also taken to literally giving them away by the several-pound bags, to anyone that will take them. So, please be warned, if you come within even 1 mile of our home or if you invite me to your place, I will send you away with grapes. Lots of them.

If this potluck were happening in real life, I can say in all honesty, that I’d be going Great Grape Ape on the whole party! Not only would I be bringing these beautiful savory mini-tarts highlighting the yummy fresh grapes, but I would also be toting a large bowl of fresh grapes for munching on, plus a few bags to giveaway to whomever would give them a good home.

As I mentioned earlier this week, with this Bacon Roasted Grape Salad, one of the best things I have discovered to do with all of these grapes, has been to roast them. It really brings out their natural sweetness in the most incredible way. These savory tarts not only highlight the roasted grapes, but the flavorful creamy rosemary goat cheese filling is also a wonderful compliment to the slightly sweet roasted grapes. The tartness from the goat cheese, the rustic earthy flavor from the rosemary and the sharp bite of the fresh garlic – all make for the most wonderful savory treat.

These tarts would be great at any potluck or other get-together and could literally be served for any meal, breakfast brunch, lunch or dinner. They are nice as a side, perfect for a starter but hearty enough for a main.  I can say this all from experience since I have basically eaten my way through all of them at different meals throughout this past week. Each of the mini tarts are actually enough to serve 2, if you were serving these with other foods, but you can also make one very large tart made with a 9 or 10-inch tart pan to make at least 8 servings or you could make 12 super mini tarts with a muffin tin, as I do here.

I wanna hear from all of you, if you were joining us at this summer-inspired potluck party, what would you be bringing? Ready go!

To make vegan, simply skip the egg and add a small amount of water to the ground flaxseeds before adding them.

For the filling, instead of goat cheese, opt instead for a cashew cream. Soak 1 1/2 cups of raw cashews (covered in water) for at least 2 hours, preferably longer. Drain and rinse. Add the cashews, the juice from 1 fresh lemon and a pinch of sea salt to your food processor and process until smooth and creamy, a few minutes. Then add the remaining ingredients.

Whoa Beth! This is beyond beautiful! If we were at a real-life potluck party I would be standing by this tray of tarts with a big smile, eating them one-by-one. It all looks sooo good!

I’m salivating. Goat cheese is one of my ultimate favorite foods, so anything with it will pique my interest…but these look exceptionally amazing. What a perfect potluck food! I bet the rosemary combination really gives them a bang. It’s so nice to “meet” you at the potluck, can’t wait to see what else you have in store!


5 Sara @ Cake Over Steak July 25, 2014 at 9:37 am

Wow these sound AMAZING. I’ve never roasted grapes but it sounds delicious … and with the rosemary!??! Anywho, so glad we found each other through this potluck! It’s great to come across a fellow designer/illustrator/food blogger in this world.

Anytime roasted grapes are involved, I’m there!


9 Ileana July 25, 2014 at 11:19 am

These look so delicious and elegant! I tried roasted grapes for a bruschetta recipe and have loved them ever since. Can’t wait to try your recipe! Glad I found your blog through this potluck. 🙂


10 Millie l Add A Little July 25, 2014 at 4:14 pm

Ooh I’ve got to try this out! Looks fantastic Beth!!


11 Helen July 26, 2014 at 3:34 pm

Is there a substitute for the starch please that I might have in my pantry? What is it’s role in the pastry? Thanks


12 Alana | Fix Feast Flair July 26, 2014 at 5:20 pm

Oooh girl. You are killing it with these gorgeous tarts. And grain free? I’m in!!


13 Sarah @ SnixyKitchen July 27, 2014 at 12:21 pm

I’d come to any potluck where these tarts would be served. Roasted grapes are one of my top favorite things to eat. Delish!


14 Em @ the pig & quill July 28, 2014 at 2:33 pm

Hey girl – I’d love to hang in the real world with you ladies, too! But I feel like that’d be too normal and socially acceptable. So you know, keepin’ it weird right here will work for me for a bit. Thanks for doin the damn thang! And these are so dang beyootiful I think I just might have to add a few of dem tiny tart pans to my next Amazon order. Can you imagine all the things you could do with tiny tart pans? I mean, I’m sure you could. Slash have done all the things already. Slash when should I stop talking? Slash now. xoxo! Em

These look so great, Beth! I love the idea of savory tarts — and I’m in for anything that includes goat cheese. Feeling so (pot)lucky I found your site this week!
