Zucchini Tart. A Seasonal Shift Up from an Ordinary Quiche.

We’ve finally reached that lovely moment in Summer, where the market is full of almost everything; ripe Peaches and Cantaloupe, Sweet Potato and Okra. Sugar Snaps, Nectarines, Beefsteak Tomatoes from South Jersey and Zucchinis, batons of glossy yellow and deep green.

It reminds me of a recipe that we did for Martha Stewart, last year. Food stylist Sarah Carey baked a layer of phyllo dough, and then filled it with a rich eggy mixture, of cream, cheese and basil. She then laid thin slices of zucchini, lengthwise, over the top.

It’s a step up from a regular quiche, and great for a brunch, lunch, or even dinner (perhaps with a chopped Cherry Tomato and Sweet Corn Salsa). Elevation for the humble Zucchini.
