Vegetable and Cheese Tart


Tart is a pastry dish, usually sweet, with an open top and usually filled with fruit or any sweet filling. However, recently savory tarts are becoming more and more popular. I like tarts because it's like pizza but has more topping. Today I made a tart with vegetables ( zuccini, cauliflower, onion and tomatoes) and cheese ( mozzarella, feta and gauda cheese), but instead of making crust I used phyllo ( tr. yufka). It's a quick and delicious dish!

What we need: 

2 big phyllo sheets or make a crust from flour, butter, salt and pepper and some drops of water.

butter or olive oil for brushing phyllo sheets

Filling:

cauliflower

zuccini

onion

garlic

spinach

tomato

cheeses: feta, mozzarella, gauda

2 eggs

salt and pepper

basil

thyme

rosemary

( I didn't write the amount of vegetables as you can use as much as you want or choose other vegetables!)

What we have to do:

1. Take phyllo sheets and a tart dish. Brush the dish with olive oil or butter, add one phyllo sheet, trim or cut or bend to make the shape of a dish. Brush with oil again and put 4-5 layers of phyllo.

2. Cut cauliflower, zuccini, onion and garlic. Fry in a pan until they become soft but not done yet. Add salt and pepper and herbs. Mix in spinach ( can be fresh or frozen)

3. When fried vegetables cool, add most of the cheese and beaten eggs and pour into a phyllo dish. Add tomatoes and remaining mozzarella. Sprinkle a bit of salt ( very little as feta cheese is usually salty) and pepper. 

4. Bake in 180C oven for about 40 min. Enjoy!!!

  2. I'd like to bake this tart, however I have a question. You have 2 eggs in the filling, but they are missing in the process of making. When do you put them in?

  3. Thanks for noticing mistakes!!! Corrected the recipe. Eggs must be mixed in the tart filling.
