Zucchini Tomato Tart

Sunday, September 27, 2015
What better way to use fresh tomatoes than with this healthy delicious baked zucchini tomato tart?

It's great for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

Add some grilled chicken or meat and this also makes a great side dish.


This tart really goes with anything and anytime.


We really love it as it is light for the summer months and since we have a beautiful garden and grow our own tomatoes and zucchini this is a win-win to enjoy the fruits of our labor!


When you serve this to friends and family, don't be surprised they think it took all day for you to do and more gourmet than just a usual tart to serve.


You can make this elegant and serve it on a bed of fresh lettuce greens if you really want to wow your family or guests.


It really is delicious and impresses everyone.


Make sure you tell them how to make a healthy version of this is too!

Zucchini and Tomatoes



If this tart doesn't shout all the goodness of summer, nothing does.


This tart is baked with a delicious cream egg mixture and filled with the taste of summer vegetables.


Perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner.

Cheeses



If you love cheese, mozzarella that is used in this tart is a mild taste.


You can substitute cheddar, provolone, or any easy melting cheese you like.


I really love to sprinkle a little Romano cheese on top of the tomatoes and then drizzle them with olive oil before baking.


If you are watching carbs, then substitute crushed pork rinds for the bread crumbs.

A Light Meal



During the hotter months, this is the perfect light meal solution.


Add a little house salad to this and you have a whole meal.


Of course, you can add cooked meats to your tart if you like.


I prefer it all vegetarian.

Meat Lovers


If your family prefer meats, I recommend only using cooked meats.


Cooked bacon, Italian sausages cut up and ham is the best choices.


One of my favorite parts of summer is when zucchini is in abundance.


I never have enough recipes to use it all up so I freeze it.


Maybe you remember my tips on Zucchini post? You can find it here.

  2. I loove this Zucchini tart. It certainly gave me an idea on how to use my Zucchini. I am not a fan of cheese, so I will revise it and skip the cheese on mine and I will add ground chicken .
