It’s heirloom tomato season! They’re delicious and the crowning glory of today’s recipe, Heirloom Tomato Tart. It’s is a great dish. Heirloom tomatoes are cradled on a base of puff pastry. A layer of ricotta cheese mixed with garlic and basil is sandwiched in between to bring the flavors and textures together. It’s awesome.
Anyone for brunch?! A hearty slice of Heirloom Tomato Tart with a side salad is a brunch delight. It’s easy to make and simple to serve. It’s a great for lunch too,
I used store bought frozen puff pastry in this recipe. It’s the simplest way to create this dish, puff pastry can be a chore to make, so follow my lead.
I love heirloom tomatoes, the intense flavor, the odd shapes and sizes, the vibrant colors. On sight, they immediately speak to your tastebuds implying a delicious meal before you even take a taste. They taste great on their own with a sprinkling of salt as a side salad. Likewise, adding them to a dish as the feature of a meal is also a winner idea.
I will be sharing a few more recipes featuring heirloom tomatoes, so come back soon.
What I really like about this dish is that it can be frozen. Just cut it into individual servings, wrap in wax paper or parchment paper and place in a sealable freezer bag before placing in the freezer. It’s good frozen for a few months, allow to defrost before heating in the oven.
The end of summer is nigh folks, so if you plan on having a modest gathering you better get to planning. Heirloom Tomato Tart can be sliced into small bite size chunks and served to a group as passed hors d’oeuvres. The layered flavors work really well with a cocktail, so give it a try.
