Beet Tart with Beet Green Pesto Recipe

Beet Tart with Beet Green Pesto

06.14.12 by Jackie

My husband Lulu has been harvesting the most beautiful vegetables this season. I cook depending on what's available in our vegetable box, and today, I played around with red and golden beets. Nothing went to waste. I made a beet leaf (it's edible!) pesto that I used as the filling for a -- you guessed it -- beet tart

I recently discovered fellow blogger Béatrice Peltre's new cookbook that shares the name of her lovely website, LaTartineGourmande.com. I adapted her savory crust recipe for this dish, and I was very pleased with the result. The xanthan gum dough holds together much better, so I'm definitely going to keep this tip in mind.

Eggplant Tart Recipe

This eggplant tart is a refreshing and light dish. Eggplants are sliced, grilled and seasoned with pistachio pesto. The filling is a mixture of chopped eggplant with sautéed water chestnuts, which adds body to the tart.

Paired with a salad, this makes the perfect midday meal. It's pretty filling and will keep you going for the rest of the day. Enjoy!

Mushroom Mozzarella Cheese Tart Recipe Recipe

My husband Lulu is addicted to anything with puff pastry dough. Because of the horrible windy weather, I decided to prepare my version of (vegetarian) chicken soup for the soul in the form of individual mushroom and mozzarella tartlets accompanied by a bowl of warm corn chowder. It’s the perfect prescription for this cold, gray day.

This savory tartlet consists of 4 layers. First, I baked the puff pastry shells separately in the oven. I cooked the first layer of soy chorizo along with tomato paste and tomato sauce (you could also add ground beef for extra flavor if you don’t need it to be vegetarian). The second is sautéed large button mushrooms in butter and the last one is thick mozzarella slices. The result is spectacular and is really enhanced pairing it with corn soup and garlic cheese bread. You won't be disappointed!

Mushroom Cheese Tart (Savory Tart Recipe) Recipe

Making savory tarts is pretty simple. All you need is a crust, a filling and usually a cheese topping. I pair these tarts with a green salad, which make a healthful, tasty, light meal.

I prepared a vegetarian tart with California Lavash pizza lavash as the pie crust. I put together two layers of lavash for sturdiness. The filling is a combination of caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, marinara sauce and soy chorizo. I garnished the tart with goat cheese topping and shredded Parmesan.

I've really enjoyed cooking with California Lavash breads; check back again tomorrow and see another new recipe using the delicious soft flatbread! And don't forget to enter our giveaway this week.

Zucchini Tart Recipe (Tarte aux Courgettes) Recipe

Savory tart is a very versatile dish. The crust is usually puff pastry, a sauce serves as the filling and the topping is roasted or grilled vegetables. I made pesto using goat ricotta cheese and topped the tart with zucchini. Once you choose your favorite flavorings, you can come up with your own combinations for the pesto sauce, cheeses and vegetables.

Zucchini is a relatively easy vegetable to plant from seeds. My husband Lulu's uncle grew humongous 18-inch zucchini in his garden. Ratatouille would have been a great way to make great use of the veggie but I really wanted to showcase the size of the slices in a tart.
