Vegetable and Hummus Tart


This has been my lunch as of lately. Except for I cheat and use Naan Bread as the crust instead of making homemade. I usually just use whatever veggies I have at home. My standard tart usually consists of onion, spinach, tomatoes, red bell pepper, kalamata olives and feta cheese. The orginal recipe doesn’t call for cheese but I think cheese makes everything taste better! I really think any combo of veggies would work wonderfully for this. This is such a tasty and easy lunch. I have also been on a kick of making my own hummus. I use Ina’s recipe and it is fabulous! The combo of the hummus and veggies is ridiculously good! Best part my little man gobbles this stuff up, he loves hummus on anything, so this ensures he gets his veggies for the day!

VEGETABLE AND HUMMUS TART
Adapted From E Curry Blog
INGREDIENTS
Naan Bread or make your own (Recipe HERE)
Hummus- Recipe below
Spinach
Tomatoes
Red Pepper
Red Onion
Kalamata Olives
Feta Cheese
Parmesan Cheese


DIRECTIONS
Saute or roast all veggies until tender. I usually saute mine in olive oil because it is quicker than roasting. Note- I usually don’t cook my tomatoes I just slice them and lay over the top of the cooked veggies. Spread Hummus on Naan Bread. Layer on Veggies, Olives and top with Parmesan and Feta Cheese. Bake at 350 degrees about 15 mins or until cheese is melted.

Hummus
Ingredients
4 garlic cloves
2 cups canned chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
2 tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
8 dashes hot sauce
Directions
Turn on the food processor fitted with the steel blade and drop the garlic down the feed tube; process until it’s minced. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Taste, for seasoning, and serve chilled or at room temperature.
**My hummus was extra thick so I added in olive oil and extra water to loosen it up to the consistency I prefer.**
