Tomato Tart

July 21, 2010

We have so much produce in our house right now.  Lots of stuff from farmer’s market, our garden is taking off, then we ended up coming home with a fair amount from crop swap, and I was given lettuce from a coworker.  It’s a little ridiculous.

Some of the tomatoes I got from crop swap needed to be used ASAP so I made a variation of David Lebovitz’s French Tomato Tart for dinner last night.  Sometimes I wish I had white flour in the house, because the whole wheat was a little heavy for the tart crust.  Other than that it was very, very tasty.  I didn’t have goat cheese so I threw in some shredded sharp cheddar.  I also added a layer of thinly sliced onions between the mustard layer and the tomatoes.

I would absolutely make this again.  Highly recommended!

    Thanks for the recipe and the creative substitutions. Sounds good, we’ll try it. Yup, we’re up to our knees in tomatoes. For awhile, with the false starts on spring, the tomatoes were so confused I didn’t think they’d figure it out. But they did. Now all the early varieties are big and bulging and the Brandywines and Radiator Charlies are a pound&half or so and only half grown. The cauliflower got confused, though and the heads all wound up with sun-rot or something (brownish) and some of the beans got fried despite good watering. I’m surprised some people are still getting lettuce this late. In this heat, ours bolted two weeks ago. Oh well, ‘next year’ is our annual garden mantra. so, “Next Year” it is.
