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.

Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented tea drink, served cold. Due to the fermentation it is a prebiotic drink, slightly vinegary and you can experiment with adding flavours once you master the basic kombucha. Great in a fancy glass with dinner.

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.
