Wednesday, 26 August '09: Easy Tomato Tart for Leona

Leona, my South African friend of over 30 years, now resident in Linz, Austria has asked me for the recipe for my quick and easy tomato tart which I baked for my birthday in July. Here it is:

Mom Hammond's shortcrust pastry
1 cup flour
1 egg yolk
100g margerine or unsalted butter
One Tablespoon lemon juice

Rub margerine into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk and lemon juice and a little cold water if necessary to make a pliable dough.

50 ml olive oil
20ml crushed garlic
4 baby leeks finely chopped
800g Rosa tomatoes halved
50 ml fresh basil torn
30 ml white balsamic vinegar
salt and freshly ground pepper
50 ml grated mozzarella cheese

1 Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Roll out the dough and line loose-bottomed tart pan. Prick the bottom with a fork.
2 Spread the bottom of the unbaked pastry case with the basil leaves, leeks and mozarella in that order. Cover as evenly as possible with tomato halves.
3 Season and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic.
4 Bake for about 30 minutes.

There you go, Leona. Hope Franz enjoys! (You can also mix in a can of tuna for a more substantial tart. Or add olives and/or anchovies to the tomato filling. Black olives look lovely among the red tomatoes.)

Ooh Eleanor, this looks very yummy! I shall tell Girth about it, he's in our kitchen now, so he'll probably bake one straight away, with the olives in too!

OMG! This looks scrumptious, Eleanor! I love those flavours and I am a fiend for tomatoes. I will have to try this definitely.
