Nothing beats the taste of freshly picked, right off the vine garden tomatoes, the flavor, the texture, everything is so different, I’m sure going to miss them when there gone, but for now I’m going to enjoy them any which way I can!
Almost every meal I make, including breakfast, you’ll see a side of sliced tomatoes drizzled with good olive oil and sea salt sitting on my table, it’s a staple here in the summer.
I also remembered I had a big bag of leftover cooked brown rice sitting in my fridge, and since I hate to waste anything I thought, why not change it up a bit and make the rice be the crust for the tart instead of pastry dough. I’m excited to say we loved it, it was so good!
I used a deeper, fluted tart pan but you could also use a deep dish pie pan, I say deep because you want plenty of room for your rice crust, filling and topping of tomatoes. Notice the crust edge, it came out perfectly from the pan, it had a nice crunch and chewy texture to it.
