Tuna, tomato and mustard tart

Do you like savory tarts? Sometimes they are called quiche. For me it is one of my favorite salty dishes. It is a tart, it looks like a dessert but it is not. You eat it as a main dish and is just great. With or without meat, almost always it included vegetables. And you can include in it any left overs that you have. This one is with tuna fish. As vegetables there are tomatoes. And there is one ingredient that makes this tart so special: mustard. I wouldn't have believed that can add such a flavor and taste to a quiche like this but it is indeed a must.

Ingredients (for 2 medium tarts):
  • 400g shortcrust pastry
  • 400g tuna fish
  • 5 tomatoes (sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 250ml milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 250ml sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • salt

  1. Stretch the dough to fit the pans and put it inside. I use non-stick pans so I do not bother to oil or to use baking paper.
  2. Layer the tuna fish over the pastry.
  3. Layer the tomatoes on top of the tuna.
  4. Beat the eggs, add the sour cream, the nutmeg, the milk, salt and mustard and mix well all together.
  5. Pour this composition over the tuna fish and tomatoes.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven at 200ºC for 1h.

The recipe was inspired from Les meilleurs recettes Marmiton, page 47.
