Summer is approaching fast and our eating habits are changing too. We don’t need those heavy dishes that are slow to digest, therefore keeping us warm all day long. If you are anything like me, you need light dishes that are filling but yet easy on your stomach.

Summer Tomato Tuna Tart Up close

This tarte is by far my favorite to make for its simplicity. You should know me by now, it has to be easy and inexpensive. Life is complicated enough on its own! And the flavors will surprise you too! The first time I tried it was at a friend’s house and I was so scared to take a bite! Tomato and tuna, really??? But boy, was I wrong!  Combine it with a simple green salad and you have the perfect lunch or light dinner.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can vary it to your liking. Think of it like a pizza. You have the base and you just change the toppings. Your base will always be a pie crust (homemade recipe here), a thin layer of French Dijon mustard, a thin layer of whipping cream and a layer of cheese. What you put on top can be varied to match your mood or your taste. If you run out of ideas, I will have more for you in the coming weeks, so don’t hesitate to come back!  Bon appétit!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 ° F. Roll your crust onto a pie dish. I used an 11" Ikea pie mold.
  2. Spread a thin layer of the mustard on the crust. It may seem that there's not enough mustard, but if you add more, all you will taste is the mustard. Sprinkle the tuna on top of the mustard. Same as the mustard, it will seem that there's not enough. Trust me, it's enough. Add the cream and tilt your dish to ensure the crust is evenly covered. Finally sprinkle your shredded cheese.
  3. Slice your tomatoes and place them on top of the cheese. Do not make your slices too think and do not overlap your tomato slices or your quiche will become watery. Sprinkle with the oregano.
  4. Bake for about 30mns until the cream is set and no longer watery. Enjoy with a green salad.
