If you’re looking for a dish that represents the best of summer, look no further than this vegetable tart recipe. Made with summer squash and homemade pesto sauce, it’s hard not to want to make this vegetable tart over and over again.
To create this vegetable tart, you’ll need to create three components: the crust, the pesto sauce, and the vegetable filling. The ingredients are similar to those of a vegetable quiche except, instead of using eggs in our recipe, we use pesto sauce. In fact, you can think of this vegetable tart or vegetable galette, as it’s also known as, as the French version of pizza.
To make this vegetable tart recipe incredibly simple, we use store-bought pastry dough, but you could definitely make your own from scratch if you wanted to. It may be especially handy to make homemade pastry if you are on a special diet, for instance, and need something like a gluten-free pastry crust.
If you’ve never made pesto sauce before, get ready to be surprised at just how easy it is. Pesto sauce comes together quickly and easily in a food processor, so no need to whip out a cooking pan or any fancy cooking techniques.
After the pesto sauce is spread onto your prepared pastry crust, the vegetables are added on top and the vegetable tart gets baked in the oven until the pastry is golden and the vegetables are tender. You can enjoy this tart for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or all of the above!
