This tomato basil puff pastry tart is full of fresh herbs &  veggies and has a creamy feta sauce.

In the summertime, meals get really simple at our house because we would rather be outside than stuck at the kitchen sink doing dishes. This meal is a favorite because it’s topped with fresh veggies and herbs from our garden.  Since we use already prepared puff pastry, this tart is easy and to make.

We have a tiny garden and every summer we grow cucumbers, grape tomatoes, dill, herbs, and with luck…spinach. This year was a good year for spinach but last year…not so much.  I love that this tomato basil puff pastry tart recipe lets us use nearly everything we grow.

Years ago, when I learned about how heart-healthy Mediterranean food is, it was like a win-win for us because we could sort of have our cake and eat it too. Every member of my family LOVES many of the ingredients that go into most Greek food. We are big fans of Feta, cucumber, and grape tomatoes, and we are obsessed with Kalamata olives!

You can also serve this Greek style tomato basil puff pastry tart as an appetizer.

I know that there are similar puff pastry tarts out there served as an appetizer, but we make this recipe for supper. Because, in the summertime, it is perfect for a meal. But by all means, if you want to serve it as an appetizer go ahead, it’s great for that too.

In fact, I recently served this tart as an appetizer at a gathering we had in the spring and my guests devoured it. I’m just saying… it’s too good to enjoy only when company comes over.

Instructions:

For the crust

Let puff pastry thaw in the refrigerator overnight, or on the countertop until semi-soft but not warm. Press both puff pastry sheets into a cookie sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Press the edges of the two sheets together to make one large sheet.

Lightly score a 1 inch border around the entire edge of the pan with a paring knife. Use a fork to prick the center of the puff pastry several times. This will allow the edges to puff up while the center stays down.

In a small bowl, slightly beat the egg, and use a baster to brush it onto the enitre surface of the puff pastry. Cook puff pastry, according to package directions until golden brown.

Notes

Greek style tomato basil puff pastry tartThis tart can also be made with refrigerated crescent dough but is best with puff pastry. Dried leaf dill, basil, and chives can be used if you don't have any fresh on hand, but in the summertime, fresh is always more delicious!

About Laura

I  am a Southern California turned small town, Midwest Mom. I am wife to Bruce and mom to my three girls.

Back when I first started my organizing journey in 2013, I had what I thought of as a dirty little secret. I have ADHD and although I am organized, and enjoy the process of sorting, and tidying. I knew that there were many others with ADHD who really struggled with staying organized. I had a case of imposter syndrome and mostly kept the fact that I had ADHD to myself. That is until I learned that there are other successful professional organizers who have also learned to compensate for their ADHD.

I eventually realized that my need for order and simplicity actually stems from having ADHD as a way to compensate for my short attention span. So my gifts and my challenges are all ironically tied together to create who I am,  and I am able to relate to and help others as a result of this coping method that I have developed for myself.

I help women and moms with ADHD, but I also help those who struggle with clutter without having ADHD.  Because simplicity and less clutter are always at the heart of staying organized, there is much overlap when it comes to finding solutions to clutter and disorganization.

I am dedicated to keeping my life as simple as possible and to helping others do the same by teaching them how to declutter their homes, simplify their lives, and manage their busy families better.

I have been helping others stay organized since 2013.

It is my deepest hope that you will find resources here that will bring you closer to living a simpler, more intentional, and more peaceful life. 

always have

something

beautiful 

in your space…

…but let it be

as simple

as a daisy

in a vase.
