Easy French Tomato Tarte


At college, I started writing for a national food blog run by college students. It’s called Spoon University. Many different schools have chapters and there’s a wealth of food related articles on this website – Everything from recipes to quizzes to food facts. I highly recommend you check it out at http://spoonuniversity.com. 

Writing for spoon is wonderful experience and I’m really enjoying it. Here I want to share with you my first article, one of my favorite family recipes that we make a lot in my family. Here are just a few pictures and the basic recipe, but please find the whole article here.


1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
100 ml olive oil
100 ml warm water
2 tablespoons mustard
1 cup grated cheese of your preference
½ teaspoon thyme
4 tomatoes
Salt and pepper for seasoning

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, olive oil and warm water to make the dough.

3. Using your hands, spread the dough in a ceramic dish. Make sure it is evenly spread.

4. Using a spoon, spread the mustard on top of the dough. Layer the cheese, thyme and sliced tomatoes on top.

5. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top according to your preference.

6. Cook the tarte for 25-30 minutes at 375ºF, or until the crust is golden brown.
