This vegetable tart with a cheddar cornmeal crust is not only a feast for the eyes, as you can see in the gorgeous photo above, but a feast for the stomach as well. The flavor of the cornmeal crust is delicately enhanced with Cabot Sharp Cheddar and the vegetable filling features a lovely combination of fresh, healthy vegetables, including tomatoes, spring onions, portobello mushrooms, and red bell peppers.

To make the crust, preheat your oven to 400ºF and coat an 11-inch or similar-size tart pan with olive oil spray. In a bowl, stir together the cornmeal, Cabot Sharp Cheddar, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg until frothy and then whisk in the milk and olive oil. Stir the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until well blended.


Press the crust mixture over the bottom and slightly up the sides of tart pan and bake the crust until lightly colored, about 12 to 18 minutes, and remove from oven.


For the vegetable filling, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the tomatoes, onions, portobellos, and red bell peppers in a single layer on the sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and bake vegetables for 15 minutes. Let cool slightly.


Place a layer of portobello slices on the crust and top with a layer of red peppers. Sprinkle with half of the grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese. Add a layer of onions and a layer of tomato slices. Sprinkle with the remaining cheddar. Arrange enoki mushrooms on top and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake the tart until lightly browned on top, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly and then enjoy the deliciousness!
