Rainbow Rose Vegetable Tart

Rainbow Rose Vegetable Tart

Posted 2017-07-03 by finyfollow

This is a quaint pie with vegetables roses, and is quite easy to make.

I had some left over pizza wholemeal pastry and I used this as a base rather than a shop bought one, however a shop bought puff pastry would work.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hr 15 minutes
Serves: 4 - 6

Ingredients
Pastry - [link http://recipeyum.com.au/homemade-pizza-with-bocconcini-and-prosciutto/ home made pastry]
225 g ricotta cheese
1 egg
45 g Parmesan cheese, grated
Pinch nutmeg
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tbsp oregano
¼ cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
2 large carrots (multi coloured if available)
1 small zucchini

Method
  • Make the pastry or defrost if using left over as I did.
  • Home made wholemeal pastry


  • Preheat the oven to 190°/170° fan forced.

  • Using a tart pan or dish, put the pastry into this dish (first spray with oil), and bring it up over the sides.

  • Put some baking paper over this and weigh it down with something - I have specially made weights for this purpose.


  • Bake it for about 15 - 20 minutes and remove the weights, and allow the base to cool.

  • In a bowl, add the egg, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, grated nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.

  • Add the Mozzarella and oregano, and mix until it is smooth.

  • Slice strips of zucchini and carrots lengthwise using a potato peeler or a mandolin.
  • Roses are made by rolling 3 of these strips together tightly


  • Put these slices on a plate and cook in the microwave for about a minute to soften the slices as you will need to roll them to give the rose shape.

  • Spread the cheese mixture on top of the tart base.

  • Roll each piece of carrot or zucchini as tight as possible, to make them as large as you want - I used about 3 strips for each one.

  • Start putting these down in the centre of the pie, and press down into the cheese mixture.

  • Layers these round the centre one in a spiral pattern.


  • Brush olive oil on top of the roses, and bake for about 50 minutes.

  • Slice and serve with a salad or vegetables.
