These vegetable-packed tomato and pepper galettes take just five minutes to prep.

These are so easy to make with shop-bought pastry (which honestly, is pretty much as good as homemade puff pastry). Top the crisp, golden puff pastry with yellow and orange peppers, onion, kalamata olives, and plum tomatoes for a fully Mediterranean taste. Although they look really fabulous, this is actually one of our brilliant cheap family meals - ideal for anyone working to a budget. Serve these a side salad and it's a good healthy option too: the recipe makes four tarts at just 371 calories per serving.


  • 2 peppers, yellow and orange, deseeded and cut into thick strips
  • 1 onion, peeled and cut into thin wedges
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 3tbsps olive oil
  • 250g all-butter puff pastry
  • 2tbsps chopped fresh parsley
  • 12 kalamata olives, pitted
  • 16-20 baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Baking sheet, lightly buttered




  1. Set the oven to 190°C/380°F/Gas Mark 5. Mix the pepper strips and onion wedges on a baking sheet with thyme sprigs and 2tbsp oil. Roast for 30 mins, stirring occasionally, until they’re softened.
  2. Meanwhile, roll out the pastry to a square, about 28cm. Cut into 4 x 14cm squares. Put them on the baking sheet. Mark a thin border around each one. Prick inside with a fork. Chill for about 30 mins.
  3. Raise the oven temperature to 220°C/430°F/Gas Mark 7. Spoon the pepper mixture inside the pastry border. Sprinkle with parsley and add the olives and halved tomatoes. Drizzle with the rest of the oil.
  4. Bake for 25 mins, below the centre of the oven. Season and drizzle with more oil, if you like.
