tomato tart with mustard and ricotta

This Tomato Tart with Mustard and Ricotta is a taste of the good summer things to come. It’s pretty much a quiche, with wilted greens and sliced tomatoes in a mustard-custard base and dollops of ricotta on top. I used red and orange tomatoes and threw in a few baby green ones to fill in the gaps. Pretty much everyone in the group noticed that the book’s photo doesn’t really look like what came out of our ovens. I think the food stylist had some tricks up his or her sleeve to make Dorie’s tart look a little less…yellow. At the very least, the ricotta in that photo was not baked and some of the greens were scattered about the top (the recipe instructions have you add them to the bottom of the tart, in which case, they’re all hidden by tomatoes and custard). I did make note of this and set aside some extra cooked spinach to arrange on top after my tart was baked. It was pretty in it’s own way, I guess, and it was totally delicious, even with early tomatoes from the grocery store. It certainly made a nice lunch and leftovers were good the next day with a little glass of white wine.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. Your tart looks gorgeous and a smart move for the reserved greens which provide a good balance of color. Yes, you have a point with the food stylist taking some liberty at the finished tart, although unrealistic as it might look.

  2. Funny how we all pointed out the inconsistencies; poor Dorie. Good idea with putting some greens on top, I meant to but forgot. I still enjoyed this one flaws and all.

  3. 100% the tart in the book doesn’t have the custard poured in and it’s not fully baked! I loved this tart and yours is simply stunning!

  4. Yours looks great! It is funny, I kept looking back at the picture and re reading where you put the spinach but in the end I just went with it…and since I was already swapping out the mozzarella I knew mine would look different. All that aside, we thought it was absolutely delicious! 😍
