Mediterranean Tomato Tart
This mediterranean tart is a must make. You can make it with tomatoes of the same or different size, of different colors and different varieties. The most important thing is that they are ripe and flavorful. Perfect dish for small crowds.
Cut tomatoes into thin (0.5 cm) slices. Put them in a single layer on paper towel. Pat dry with paper towel.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. On the floured piece of parchment paper roll out the puff pastry and poke all over with a fork, to release the steam while baking.
Evenly spread with dijon mustard.
Arrange the tomatoes on top. Fold the edges of dough.
Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with cheese and herbs.
Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for about 25-30 minutes until the tomatoes are cooked through and the cheese is softening and colouring at the edges.
Cut the tart into quarters, garnish with fresh basil and serve.
