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








cheeses: feta, mozzarella, gauda

2 eggs

salt and pepper




( 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!!!
