Zucchini-Caramelized Onion Tart

Be sure to check out the giveaway I am sponsoring over at Happy Hour Projects (ends Sunday).

This is still sitting in my belly, making me all food happy as I type this.  I hope I don't get too mushy about it - because it was PHENOMENAL.  I wasn't sure what to make for supper and then remembered that I had taken out puff pastry a few days ago and figured I had better get to using it.

I stared in the crisper looking at zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, squash.  What to do, what to do?  I finally decided on this:

f/4.8, 1/60, 1600ISO

Cut up two onions and caramelize on the stove top (about 15 or 20 minutes).  Near the end, splash with some rice wine vinegar and dried thyme.

f/7.1, 1/200, 1600ISO


Roll out the puff pastry and top with the onions.

F/4.5, 1/1000, 1600ISO


Next comes some Parmesan cheese and mozzarella.

F/4.5, 1/640, 1600ISO


On top of that you can show off your skills by lining up some thinly sliced zucchini.  A little salt and pepper on top.

F/4.5, 1/500, 1600ISO


Pop into the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes.

Add some grated Parmesan on top and broil until it turns that awesome brown.

F/4.5, 1/200, 1600ISO


Slice with a pizza cutter and Bob's your uncle.  This would be great as an appetizer as well.

F/3.8, 1/100, 1600ISO
Next time I would cut back on the mozzarella a bit.  It was over the top cheesy and sooooo good.

This is where I'm partying:

Yum! I heart zucchini and caramelized onions! I'm going to try this recipe within the next 2 days. Sadly, in December I am putting myself back on low carb and won't be able to eat anything good from then on. No bread. Though I could just eat the toppings!

MMMMmmmmmmmm! I could almost smell this one! I can't wait to try it. I have to buy some puff pastry. It would be a good one to remember for the summer too when all the zucchini is going crazy!

Mmmmm, I may actually try this myself instead of having you add it to the rather large buffet I've requested.

Um. Cut back on the cheese?? You're kidding. Right?? ;)
