TWD Summer Vegetable Tart


I was so happy when I saw the recipe selections for this month.  I love that they relied on seasonal fruits and vegetables, and that both were relatively quick to make (at least in terms of hands-on time).  I tried to start this earlier in the day but only got to cutting some vegetables before Charlotte needed my attention.  Luckily, I was still able to get it made in about an hour after Paul came home.  I followed the recipe pretty closely, but cut the butter in half, used regular butter instead of clarified, and substituted yellow squash for the mushrooms.  I don't like mushrooms, and Paul's yellow squash plants have been insanely prolific the summer, so it was an easy substitution.  The hardest part for me--again!--was getting this out of the pan.  I had a lot of overhang (maybe I should have trimmed it before I baked this?) and I kept breaking it as I was trying to cut it neatly to get pieces out of the pan.  The first piece was definitely the hardest, but the second wasn't exactly easy either...Oh well.  This is another winner in my book.  I love the idea.  I'm sure I'll it again with all kinds of fillings.

  1. Jora, your tart looks lovely. I really loved this tart. The filling was delicious and I enjoyed the crunch of the phyllo. I also used just melted butter. I agree this tart was a winner!

  2. It is a winner in my book too! We loved it too. I just melted butter too and it worked fine. I look forward to making this again and mixing up the veggies I use.

  3. This had great flavor, but the prettiness ended once it was cut up :-) This is a nice way to use up those summer veggies.

  4. Looks good with that salad. I was so excited about the tart, I didn't think about a side dish (except ice cream, LOL!). Hey, this recipe was for eating, not photographing.

  5. This was a great vessel for any kind of vegetables. Too bad the edges kept breaking off. I had a hard time getting it to the plate with the edges intact. The filling was delicious however!

  7. I knew that I was never going to get my tart out of the pan in one piece, so I left it there. Yours turned out great!
