Summer tomato tart

What will this recipe make?

If you've been growing your own tomatoes in the garden and you suddenly have an abundance, or you've picked them up from the farmers' market when tomatoes are at their peak, this is the recipe for you! This is a favourite recipe and makes a meal when served with a mixed green salad and an Italian inspired olive oil-vinegar dressing.

Whose recipe is this?

Tart base: 100g butter 175g white spelt flour 1/2 tsp salt 2 tbsp water Filling: 5 tomatoes 5 spring onions 3 eggs 50ml oat cream 100ml milk of your choice Handful of fresh basil 2 tsp dried oregano herb 100g grated cheddar Salt, pepper
Mix the ingredients for the base and roll out the dough to fit your tart tray and up the sides. Cook for 12 min. at 200 degrees Celcius. Meanwhile slice the tomatoes and spring onions and spread them on the tart base with the chopped basil. Mix eggs, cream, milk, salt and pepper and pour over the tart. Distribute the grated cheese over the tart and sprinkle with oregano. Cook for a further 25 min in the oven. Serve with a mixed salad and dressing. Our favourite dressing is olive oil, cyder vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Give it a good shake before pouring over the salad.

Chicken, sweet potato & coconut curry

This is enough for dinner for 3-4 people, is quick to prepare and looks after itself in the oven.
Serve it with basmati rice or noodles of your choice. The red split lentils go mushy and make for a thicker, creamier sauce.


Granola bars

These are great energy bars. Goji berries are the most nutritionally dense fruit. Flaxseeds are high in Omega-3 fats and dietary fibre.


Raw beetroot salad

Beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Raw beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance. You can also grate the beetroot coarsely rather than slicing if you prefer.


Caramelised Onion Sauce

Onions are a great prebiotic source and when they’ve been gently heated for quite a while, like in this recipe, they are very easy to digest. I use this sauce in stead of tomato sauce on pizza among other things. It’s a great alternative for those who can’t tolerate tomatoes and lectins. But it’s just as great with meats, cheese, sausages, or even just a piece of crispy bread with goat cheese.
