    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    A simple to make and attractive Mediterranean Tart, containing all the classic Mediterranean ingredients, adapted from a recipe on Huey's website. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is an Australian chef whose popular TV cooking show appears twice daily on weekdays. He is also the author of many books, and runs Tolarno's Restaurant in Melbourne. It is easy to increase the quantity of the ingredients, to vary the ingredients, add others (such as artichoke hearts) and to make several smaller tarts or individual tarts.

      Another fab recipe from bluemoon downunder. I made this in a tearing hurry; just chucked all the veggies through my food processor to slice, threw them into the pan, plonked the pastry on the top (or bottom). And it STILL came out WONDERFUL! I am under strict orders to make this again.

      Good and easy and very adaptable as the poster states. I didn't have any Japanese eggplants so added a couple extra mushrooms. I did need to cook it for longer than stated but I may have used a larger pan than I should have. I also may not very familiar with puff pastry, so I am not sure how much it is supposed to be stretched. We enjoyed this wiht Country-style walnut and rosemary bread Country-style Walnut and Rosemary Bread and a tossed salad for a no-meat night. Thanks for sharing!
