TWD & BWJ: Summer Vegetable Tart

I was looking forward to making this Summer Vegetable Tart, this being summer and all. It doesn't need very long in the oven at all, so baking during the very hot weather isn't too much of a problem. I would say that this tart is a snap to make, but I hadn't worked with phyllo in a very long time and as you can see in the photo the results were less than photogenic.


I would say that the tart was a semi-success. Two out of three teenagers loved it and the third won't eat a veggie that is not broccoli, green beans or corn. I found the phyllo crust difficult to cut. So while the filling was delicious, I would pick another crust for the base.  Or, if I were to use phyllo dough again (I have a whole lot left over), I might make these as little tarts or bourekas.

To see how others fared with this tart check out Tuesdays with Dorie. Better yet, join us. There's always room for more.
