cherry tomato onion tart

smokey | Jan 30, 200611:42 AM

A few threads back(!), there was a request for vegetarian savory tart recipes. A Fish Called Wanda posted one that I thought sounded good (see link below). So, a week or so ago I finally got around to caramelizing a few pounds of onions (recipe doesn't require that many, but once I'm going to spend some time caramelizing onions, I want a lot!). And, on Saturday night, I made said tart.

Truly, it is sublime. A recipe where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. for those who like more specifics, I would estimate that I used 1/4-1/3 lb. shredded gruyere, 1-1.5 lbs onions (caramelized) and maybe one pint (?) of cherry toms. Although they would have been outstandingly mediocre on a salad, the toms were just fine here--the acidity cutting nicely against the gruyere and the sweetness of the onions.

The only change i made was the addition of a layer of spinach on the bottom (before the onions go in). It was perfectly fine, but I think it detracted from the perfection that would have been this recipe without it.

Thanks for the recipe, A Fish Called Wanda!
