So yes it’s possible to have a delish veggie tart that’s easy to make. For meat eaters this can be an alternate on a day that your feeling quite…veggie perhaps? If your like me and you work a regular 9 to 5 this can be whipped up in no time. The quick way of doing this is to have a type of bread that is already pre-made that you can purchase at your local grocer. I used Naan Bread. Naan bread is common in most Middle Eastern cuisine, it is an oven flat bread. Somewhat similar to pita bread. Now if you want to be daring you can make your crust for this. To let you know now and part of my disclaimer: I’m not a baker!!! However my beloved sister is quite a baker with the #bestdoggoneRedVelvetCake. EVER. But feel free to use any type of bread for this. This is a form of free style cooking.
Step 1. First you want to start off with pre-heating your oven to 400°
Step 2. Assemble all your veggies. For this tart I used, zucchini, tomato’s, red onion, kalamata olives, and chopped garlic. (I used half of each veggie) If you have an eggplant, squash or bell pepper that would be great as well.
Step 3. Toss all of your veggies on a baking sheet. Season with Salt & Pepper and your combination of mixed herbs.
Step 4. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil. Tossed all ingredients together(with the exception of the olives and garlic), place in the oven for about 30-45 minutes (Depending on how tender you like your veggies.)
Now while your waiting on your veggies to roast you can chill out a bit, have a glass of wine, change into something comfy or whatever suits you. If you’re a girly girl like me you can figure out what to wear the next day with that glass of wine. Just don’t get to silly with it now. 🙂
After your veggies are done to your liking you want to start to assemble your Naan bread or the bread/crust of your choice. The type of hummus that you wish to use is up too you. I had an artichoke/garlic flavor.
The reason I wait till the end to put the olives and garlic in is because I don’t want to burn the olives and the same with the garlic. After everything is assembled like in the above picture it can be put back in the oven for about 5-10 minutes. Make sure your baking sheet or foil has some type of baking spray on the bottom so the bread wont stick.
So there you have it something easy to make on a weeknight when you just want to relax before your next day. I’m not an expert on wine pairing..but when in doubt..Pinot Grigio!!!
