A tomato tart is a delightful way of making use of fresh summer tomatoes. It's good for a light lunch or dinner, or as picnic food.


Serves: 6 

  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 sheet ready-made shortcrust pastry
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour5min  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Use the pastry to line a buttered quiche dish. Line with baking paper and pour over some dried beans (or weights). Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, heat the oil in a frying pan and saute the garlic and onion for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until the juice is reduced by half. Season with salt.
  4. Spread the par-baked pastry case with mustard, then pour in the cooked tomatoes. Layer sliced tomatoes on top, then sprinkle with herbs de Provence and pepper. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

Easy, fresh and tasty. - 14 Feb 2011


Used different ingredients. I blended tofu with nutritional yeast and used that as a quiche filling, mixing the herbs and chopped tomatoes in that. I topped the lot with pitted kalamata olives. Yum. - 14 Feb 2011
