Tomato And Red Pepper Tart In A Yeasted Crust
Makes one 10- or 11-inch tart
A savory jam of sweet late-summer vegetables makes for a very succulent tart. A bit of time is involved since you’re doing it all from scratch, so think of this as a special offering at the table and, by all means, wait until produce is at its best. Late summer is the time to make this, when sweet plump peppers are in the market and roma tomatoes have a chance of actually being good. Winter? Don’t bother.
The time involved in making the filling will give a yeasted dough time to rise; so start the dough first, unless you wish to make the filling hours ahead of time. A yeast-risen dough allows you to use olive oil, and it’s easy to make. Such doughs are angelic to handle plus they end up with golden, sculpted surfaces. However, you must roll it very thin if you don’t want a big doughy crust at the end.
An egg contributes to the strength and suppleness of the dough, but if you don’t eat eggs, you can replace it with 3 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of oil. As for flour, use whatever mixture of flour appeals to you—rye, toasted barley, quinoa, or spelt flour might go into a mix along with wheat flour or a gluten-free mixture.
You will have dough left over. It’s hard to make less, but you can refrigerate it and use it later for impromptu dinner rolls or a pizza crust.
The Yeasted Dough
- 1 package (2¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- ½ cup warm water
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour, white whole-wheat flour, or a mixture, including spelt, rye, or other flours
To Make The Yeasted Dough
Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the water and let stand until it’s bubbly, about 10 minutes. Whisk the oil, egg, and salt together with the proofed yeast, then stir in the flour. When the dough is too stiff to work with a spoon, turn it onto a lightly floured counter and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Add flour to keep it from sticking, but aim to keep the dough on the wet and tacky side. (If you live in a very dry climate, your flour will be extra dry and you may not be able to use entire amount called for.) Set the dough in an oiled bowl and turn it over to coat, cover with a towel or a shower cap and let rise until doubled in bulk, 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how warm your kitchen is.
Turn the dough out. Roll it out into a thin circle (or other shape appropriate to the pan you’re using) and line a tart shell with it. If you’re not ready to fill the tart just then, put in the refrigerator so that it doesn’t continue to rise.
To Make The Tart Filling
Warm the oil over medium heat in a wide skillet, add the onions, and cook until soft, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, tomatoes, and diced peppers along with the crumbled saffron threads and aniseed. Season with ½ teaspoon of salt and a little pepper. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, especially toward the end. It should be quite thick. Taste for salt and stir in the basil.
Heat the oven to 400°F. Set the tart shell on a baking sheet. Add the filling to the shell and smooth it out. Use the pepper strips to make a crisscross design over the top. Place the olives in the spaces formed by the peppers. Bake for 35 minutes. Carefully unmold the tart onto a platter and serve warm or at room temperature.
The Tart Filling
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 large red onions, finely diced
- 2 plump garlic cloves, minced or pounded to a paste
- 1½ pounds ripe roma or other paste tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 3 large red bell peppers, roasted and peeled; 2 diced, 1 cut into thin strips
- A good pinch of saffron threads, if possible
- ¼ teaspoon aniseed
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped basil
- 16 Niçoise olives, pitted
“Madison, a doyen of vegetarian cooking, shares her favorite recipes, some of which are revised and revamped to reflect how she cooks today. . . . Her savoy cabbage, leek, and mushroom braise on toast with horseradish cream is hearty and comforting; the roasted cauliflower with romesco sauce and a shower of parsley is almost too beautiful to eat. Madison’s salad of citrus and avocado with lime-cumin vinaigrette and shredded greens is a vibrant blend of acidity, bitterness, and tang. She provides flavors for every palate and every course, including appealing desserts such as olive oil, almond, and blood orange cake; rhubarb-raspberry compote; and walnut nugget cookies. Eye-catching full-color photos further enhance this stellar collection. One glance will quickly show why the dishes here are Madison’s go-to meals, and they will soon become readers’ favorites as well.”

Each recipe she presents has evolved over the years. These recipes are finely-tuned in a way that brings out the very best of its ingredients, in their most basic ways. Decades of working with vegetarian ingredients--thinking and concocting--caused Madison to grow these recipes in a minimalistic way. Not only that, these recipes have evolved along with the American food revolution of the past several decades.
If you've been following Madison through this evolution--as I have--you can hardly not buy this book. If you are new to following Deborah Madison, I wonder if you will be able to appreciate the value of this book. If you are not even aware that there's been a food revolution, you may be dumbfounded by some of the essay-like content that you read in this cook book.
Do you follow recipes exactly, or do you pick and choose parts of a recipe that have appeal? If you only ever follow recipes exactly, you may miss what's so great about it. These recipes allow leeway and choices.
You know your own favorite recipes that you make over and over again? Chances are that you have grown those recipes to whittle down extraneous ingredients and steps. You have fine-tuned those recipes to make it perfect for you and your family. That is what Madison has done in this book. It is a marvel. It is food for thought. The recipes spark creativity and inspiration. They show a path forward for your own growth.
