Try this delicious and simple dish today! This Tomato Tart uses a light puff pastry as its dough base, making it similar to pizza, without the effects the dough may cause on digestion or ability to chew and swallow. Packed with nutrients that benefit the health of seniors and even the pickiest of eaters, such as the antioxidant benefits of lycopene and the vision health-boosting traits of Vitamin C!
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon olive oil
2-3 large tomatoes (multiple colours make a beautiful tart, but red works just as well)
1 cup of your favourite cheese (such as blue cheese, mozzarella, feta, or Parmesan)
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, or chopped fresh herbs like basil and oregano
Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
Stretch out the puff pastry on the lined baking sheet. With a fork, poke small holes along the bottom.
Add onions and olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Sauté, stirring frequently, until soft — about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle cooked onions over the pastry dough, then top with tomato slices so they don’t overlap. Sprinkle with cheese and half of your seasoning or herbs. Season with salt (or salt replacement, if you’re avoiding sodium) and pepper to your tastes.
Bake for 25 minutes, until the crust is golden. Sprinkle with the remaining herbs, cut into squares, and enjoy!
