Farmer’s Tart

I was totally inspired at the farmer’s market today. Of course, we foodies always are. Today was different though – there were so many things there I’d never seen before and it’s not like I never go – I go fairly regularly. Dragon fruit, Chinese melon, Dominican eggplant WOW! So, I grabbed a huge ruby-red bell pepper, a mellow, yellow tomato (LOVE yellow tomatoes), and a sweet yellow zucchini. I had never heard of a sweet yellow zucchini. It looked glorious. I was feeling a tart and went with that. And here we are! This is absolutely, undoubtedly one of the tastiest dishes I have ever made!

Farmer’s Tart

1 recipe Perfect Pie Crust

  • 1 medium sweet yellow zucchini, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow tomato, chopped
  • 2 T parsley
  • 2 T onion, finely diced
  • ½ t kosher salt
  • ¼ t fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 c Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t country dijon mustard
  • 6 T milk

Preheat oven to 400F.

Line the tart pan with the rolled out pie crust. Trim the edges. Layer in the zucchini, bell pepper, tomato, parsley, onion, salt, pepper, and cheese.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, mustard, and milk. Pour over the veggies in the tart shell. Bake at 400F for 30 minutes or until crust is golden and tart is cooked through.

Note: the veggies I used could be swapped out with others perfectly deliciously!

  1. I totally love this Farmers tart of yours. I want to make it. What other cheese can I use? I tend to lean towards meat, so i shall add some nice fat ham cubes. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This looks amazing! I’m going to try this soon using homegrown vegetables, thanks for sharing the idea! 🙂

  3. I made two of these tonight, a regular one for the guys, and a GF one for me. I used yellow squash, mushrooms, tomato, grated carrot and onions. I had a pre made crust that I used for the guys’, and they ate the entire thing tonight!! They loved it. We had an ear of fresh corn with it.

    On mine I grated a potato for the bottom crust. Forgot to spray with Pam, needed to. Oh, and I also cut up an avocado and split it between the two. I’ve never cooked one before, but i added it after consulting Erica, and it stayed pretty much the same and added a bit more flavor.

    I’ve made lots of quiches before, but the addition of the Dijon mustard and the tomato, and using such a small amount of milk made this better than anything I’ve previously made!!

    I will be using this recipe again! Thank you!
    Hugs from your favorite Aunt Barbara!

    • Thank you so much Barbara! I am so glad you all liked it! I love that you used other veggies too – this recipe is so versatile like that 🙂 Thanks for the positive feedback and hugs to everyone up there from me!
