Almond Tart with Summer Vegetables

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces ground almonds (about 1 2/3 cups)
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

  • Summer Vegetable Filling:
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 baby eggplant, sliced
  • 1 small yellow summer squash, sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup evaporated skimmed milk
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

 


Directions

Grease a 9-inch tart shell with a removable bottom. Combine almonds, olive oil, flour, egg, salt and pepper in a large bowl, stirring well. Press into prepared tart shell and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake tart crust for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fragrant and golden brown. Cool. Increase heat to 375°F. Fill with Summer Vegetable Filling and bake 25 to 35 minutes, until set.

Summer Vegetable Filling
Preheat broiler. Spray vegetables with lightly cooking spray, place on foil-lined baking sheets, and broil 5 minutes. Turn vegetables and broil 4 more minutes; check, remove vegetables that are soft and slightly charred, and continue roasting remaining vegetables until done. Let cool.

Whisk together eggs, milk, basil, marjoram, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add cooled vegetables.
