Simple Tomato Tart

tomato tart
Very often I find that life’s simplest pleasures are also its best ones. This tomato tart is the proof: it’s a very simple recipe, but bursting with bold flavours, thanks to the mustard and herbs. You could call it a Provençale-inspired recipe, with its tomatoes, olive oil, and herbs –  it’s a perfect combination which never disappoints.

I love any recipe that can be made really quickly but is still healthy and delicious, and this one hits the mark on all three. I usually serve a slice of this tomato tart alongside a big helping of green salad. For me, it’s the perfect summer dinner – easy to make and served at room-temperature – and I can see myself savouring it at a table under a big parasol.

What about you, are you also fans of this kind of tart? Don’t forget to tag me #berlinandcoconuts if you try out this recipe so I can see all your lovely creations!
