Step by step recipe

Stage 1
50 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #1 Peel 4 tomatoes.

Slice fairly thickly. Sprinkle a little salt on both sides and spread them on a grid, if possible for at least an hour.

This is to drain some of the juice out of the tomatoes and to bring out their flavour.
Stage 2
7 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #2 Meanwhile, prepare 3 courgettes and slice.

Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a large pan over high heat, and when hot, add the sliced courgettes, thyme leaves, salt and pepper.

Cook for 5 to 7 minutes until the courgettes are just cooked but still slightly crunchy.
Stage 3
2 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #3 Pour the contents of the pan through a strainer and leave to drain.

Important: do not throw away the oil which drains off, we will use it later.
Stage 4
2 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #4 Roll out the pastry into a circle and prick all over with a fork or pique-vite (pastry pricker).

If you are not ready to use it immediately (if you are waiting for the tomatoes, for example), put the pastry to wait in the fridge.
Stage 5
3 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #5 Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

Spread 70 g tomato paste over the pastry, using a small spoon or brush.
Stage 6
7 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #6 Arrange the first round of the rosette by overlapping a tomato slice with 2 slices of courgette all the way round the outer edge of the pastry.
Stage 7
7 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #7 Arrange an inner circle overlapped in the opposite direction.

Place the top of a tomato in the centre.
Stage 8
2 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #8 Finish with a few pieces of feta.
Stage 9
40 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #9 Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, watching carefully to make sure that the edge of the pastry doesn't burn.
Stage 10
5 min.
Tomato and courgette tart : Photo of step #10 As soon as it comes out of the oven, brush the olive oil kept from cooking the courgettes over the top of the tart to glaze it. This will give it a more appetizing appearance that will impress your guests.

Remarks
