The usual cast of characters: Tart dough, vegetables, cheese, eggs. A rustic vegetable tart is one of those things that once you gather those straggler vegetables in your refrigerator drawer, an amazingly simple  and fulfilling meal is ready to be had. Is it weird that I hum every time I even think of making a tart? I think it is the anticipation of the party that’s going to be happening in my mouth.

I have baked tons of tarts. I think this is the perfect time to come clean, I might just be addicted to a baked dough. I’m not discriminatory either. I love a good pie dough, pizza dough, tart dough.

This rustic vegetable tart is lush and packed full of healthy goodness. We had this tart with a salad for dinner on a Tuesday night. It just goes to show you that it will work any day of the week and it will be a hit.
