Play With Your Food: Vegetable Tart Presentation

August 21st, 2012 · 8 Comments

Veggie tart – colorfully arranged. /From original site – anyzkowo.blogspot.com

Turn thin (operative word) strips of carrots, eggplant and zucchini into this beauty with an herbed custard (quiche) base in a tart shell. Add onions, chopped pepper and herbs to the egg mixture; arrange the strips in a pastry shell and pour liquid over all. Bake at 325 till custard sets and veggies are tender.

Gorgeous and colorful! The original art is at this foreign blog*, and I can’t translate their recipe. Other vegetable tarts are shown on the site, too.

A look once it’s cut:

*Note: A different version of this, with English recipe, appears at Stasty.com, where you can find dozens of other tasty ideas.

    Do you think you start with raw vegetables or would you blanche them first?

    Do you think we could ever replicate this, Jan??
    Perhaps a Garden Club experience?? What do you think? It is GORGEOUS!!!

    @ Sherra, blanching would add too much water. I usually saute my veggies first to extract the water and intensify flavors, however, that would be a pain in the butt with the full length veggies in this recipe. It looks so beautiful! I will have to experiment as it really looks so pretty! Jan?
