No one will miss the meat in this appealing tart. The flaky, rustic-style crust holds an assortment of flavorful veggies simply seasoned with garlic and olive oil. It's guaranteed to make an impression. —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

"In love with this easy simple recipe! Really pleased with how well it turned out :) I used zuchinni, onion and pepper, and it cut into 8 wedges. Super happy to find a different idea for a veggie side dish!"

"This. Was. Amazing! I'm not big on eggplant, so I used broccoli instead. I also used grape tomatoes instead of plum because that's what I already had. I just cut them in half long-wise. Roasting, this only needed 18 minutes. Also, I had store-made basting oil that had parsley, thyme, and garlic already in it. I used that instead, and added in the required amount of salt and pepper. At the end, I only baked it 17 minutes and that was perfect. I forgot to do the cheese on top and I didn't even miss it. The only not-so-great thing was that it was smaller than I thought it would be! I wanted more!!!"
