Thin zucchini and burrata tart

Isn’t this little thin zucchini and burrata tart just the thing?

As you may know, I’m half French, half Greek. And I live in Paris. I love cooking vegetables, and I’ll be sharing my recipes in English here ! Please excuse my english, it is not my first language !

Anyway, I’m always so happy when the zucchini season starts again each year ! As soon as I see the first ones appear, you can be sure that there’s always some in my fridge.

It’s the perfect warm-weather vegetable for me!

In fact, one of my favorite ways to eat zucchini is to cook them whole. I love steaming them whole (for about twenty minutes). Then open them in 2. Drizzle with olive oil. Drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt flakes. Et voilà! I love it! I often eat them with feta or eggs. Am I sounding crazy here?

That said, this recipe of Thin zucchini and burrata tart although very simple, is a little more elaborate.

Are thin tarts known where you live ? Here we call them “tarte fine”. It usually is made of a pastry dough layer, a spreadable and vegetables on top.

This one has a base of ricotta, garlic and basil. I spread it on store-bought puff pastry. Then very thin slices of zucchini. And once cooked, I added a big burrata ball on top. A little balsamic vinegar, olive oil and basil. And that was it. Quick and easy. Efficient. And above all, delicious!
