Spiral Vegetable Tart #vegan #vegetarian #soup #breakfast #lunch

Meagerly cut summer vegetables are the visual star of this winding vegetable tart. With a layer of natively constructed sundried tomato pesto and a flaky pie outside, this tart is as heavenly as it is lovely.

Now and then an image truly merits a thousand words. I could educate you concerning this tart — the flaky hull, the fresh delicate layers of meagerly cut vegetables covering a dainty layer of flavorful sundried tomato pesto, the crisp rosemary and oregano directly from my nursery.

Try not to misunderstand me — it's likewise flavorful. In any case, you could daintily cut a few vegetables, shower them with olive oil and herbs, and dish them and they would likewise be heavenly.

In our pre-parenthood days, we used to engage a considerable amount. Enormous evening gatherings. Hors d'oeuvres and extravagant beverages on the rooftop deck. My undisputed top choice: welcoming individuals over late at night only for enormous, wanton pastries.

Two years back, we would have had imparted this tart to companions, clunking glasses of wine, snickering and making up for lost time. Presently, I imparted this tart to my multi month old, who delved directly in with his fingers while wearing night wear.

  • 1 no-fail pie crust (alternatives: gluten free vegan)
  • 1 cup sundried tomatoes, packed in oil and drained
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan (optional)
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 large yellow squash
  • 2-3 medium carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (suggested: rosemary, thyme, oregano)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare a batch of No-Fail Pie Crust (or gluten free or vegan alternatives, depending on dietary preferences).  Chill dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. While the dough is chilling, trim the edges of the zucchini, squash, and carrots.  Slice the vegetables into long, thin slices, using a mandolin, vegetable peeler, or a sharp knife.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.  Grease a 9″ tart tan.  Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface until just a bit bigger than the tart tin.  Place the dough into the tin and press into the bottom and sides.  Trim any excess overhang.  Refrigerate the dough in the tart pan for 15 minutes.
  4. Line the dough with parchment paper and fill with dry beans or a pie weight.  Bake for 15 minutes, until edges are slightly golden.  Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  5. While the crust cools, make the pesto.  Combine the sundried tomatoes, basil, and garlic in a food processor or blender.  Pulse several times, then slowly add in 1/4 cup of olive oil and continue to pulse until the pesto reaches the consistency of spreadable paste.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Spread the pesto along the bottom of the tart.  Sprinkle with the cheese (if using).
  7. Quickly dip one piece of sliced vegetable in the remaining olive oil, or bush with oil using a pastry brush.  Roll the strip into a tight circle and place in the center of the tart.  Dip the next vegetable slice in olive oil and roll around the first slice.  Continue wrapping the vegetable slices in concentric circles until the tart is full.
  8. Brush the top of the vegetable tart with any remaining olive oil, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chopped fresh herbs.
  9. Bake at 350 °F for 45 to 50 minutes, until vegetables are crisp-tender and cooked through.  Cool in tart pan for 10 minutes, then slice and serve.
