Here, a superlatively tasty mix of sweet corn, zucchini and capsicum in white sauce adorns crispy savoury tarts. What makes the topping so amazing is the addition of herbs, seasonings and Schezwan sauce, which transform the mellow white sauce based mix into a tongue-tickling treat.

An exquisite garnish of spring onion whites and greens adds more punch to the Corn and Zucchini Savoury Tarts, making it impossible to say ‘no’ to a second helping.

These tarts make a wonderful teatime treat .
