Heirloom Tomato Tart

    • 70 minutes
    • Serves 6
    • Medium


    I love summer and it’s gorgeous bright colored produce. Like these heirloom tomatoes! I’ve always liked tomatoes but heirlooms are the best, though this recipe will work with any kind of tomato.

    This crust is gluten free and I am using walnuts instead of flour. Walnuts are high in omega 3 which is great for your brain, can improve eye health and much more! But if you don’t like walnuts, you can use other nuts like cashews or almonds.



    Make The Crust

    Preheat your oven to 350F and get a pie baking dish and food processor ready.

    To your food processor add all of the crust ingredients and pulse until it forms a coarse sand like texture. I recommend keeping it a bit coarse for texture.

    Pour the crust mixture into your pie dish and press in firmly as well as up the sides. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup for this but you can also use your fingers. Be sure the crust is pressed in evenly to ensure even baking.

    Bake the crust for 20-25 minutes then allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes.


    Make The Filling

    In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.


    Bake The Tart

    Add the ricotta mixture to your cooled crust and spread evenly then top with sliced tomatoes. Bake the tart for 25-30 minutes at 350F. Once the tart comes out of the oven, sprinkle with a bit more salt, olive oil and chopped herbs.

    Allow the tart to cool before cutting in. This tart should be consumed the same day.

    I LOVE savory tarts during the summertime, especially beautiful ones like this that have all of those gorgeous summer tomatoes. So pretty!

    This year was the first year where I planted all heirlooms. I am blown away by their rich flavor and texture. This tart looks so delicious!!
