Spring has not come in Greece! Rainy, windy days are so common and we are so anxious for sprring to finally come! I decided to make a recipe that would bring spring in my kitchen using one ingredient that I particularly love, tomatoes. So I made a vegan tart that my hubby considered a work of art. Cherry tomatoes are really so cute! It is easy and quick to make with simple ingredients. And of course it is summery and beautiful!
I used Lucia tomatoes. This is the first greek branded tomato that has already conquered the greek market and exports their delicious tomatoes abroad as well! The tomatoes are produced in a high tech glass covered greenhouse. I was realli impressed by the Lucia snack cherry tomatoes which are sold in a very handy container. You can make a salad, a light meal and take it to your office or give it to your kids at school. For more information visit their interesting website. Now let’s get cooking a healthy and scrumptious tart with these amazing Lucia tomatoes!
