Vegetable Tarte

2 Aug

Hello again!

veggietart1

With this beautiful tarte, I used quark cheese in the crust. Yes, really! And I loved it, because it made the crust kind of soft and chewy, and also adds a slight taste of cheese which went well with the tomatoes. And it’s not complicated at all! I urge you to give it a try.
Here comes the recipe:

Ingredients:
serves 2-3

1 cup flour
1 cup quark cheese
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
1/4 tsp. salt

You can wash and cut the veggies while the dough is in the fridge:
1 large onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small zucchini, sliced
2 bell peppers, sliced
2 tomatoes, quartered

olive oil
salt, pepper, oregano
bread crumbs, approx. 1/4 cup

Directions:

For the crust, knead flour, butter, quark cheese, and salt into a smooth, homogeneous dough. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and put into your fridge for at least 30 mins.

In the meantime, prepare the veggies (EXCEPT the tomatoes!) and fry them in a large pan for 3-4 mins., not more. Season the veggie mix with salt, pepper, and oregano leaves (dried or fresh).

Take the crust dough out of the fridge, and roll it out into the shape of your tarte pan. Transfer into the pan, and prick with a fork a couple of times. Sprinkle bread crumbs on the crust; cover with the vegetables.

Preheat your oven to 390°F.

Arrange quartered tomatoes on top, and gently push the crust rim on the veggies (I don’t know how to describe this! I hope you can see what I mean in the picture).

Bake the tarte for approx. 30 mins., until the crust is lightly brown, the tomatoes look crinkled, and the veggies are tender. Serve with a nice green salad, and experience happiness!!

    Fell in love with this the minute I saw it. Looks gorgeous & I love the use of quark in the crust. It’s a new soft cheese I have discovered recently, & can’t seem to get enough of! Cheers
