Tarte à la Tomate

Let me tell you guys about one more tart… and then I promise I’ll move on to other things. It’s just that they are so good, so simple, and just what you need this time of year. This quick tomato tart with some salad on the side and a glass of rosé makes the perfect summer meal. 

Honestly during the summer I could make this tart at least once a week and never get bored of it. The flavor of the heirloom tomatoes shines strong with a base of mustard to compliment them. I’m sure you could add other veggies to this and create some variations, but I like to keep it nice and simple.

Tarte aux Mirabelles

Something I love about France in the summer is the bounty of delicious, juicy produce. Tomatoes, peaches, nectarines are everywhere in seemingly endless quantities as we devour them while the season lasts.

One of the best things to do with them is throw them into a simple tart to bring out their bright flavours. You can use this recipe here more as a template to work with whatever fruit you have around and in season.
