A few weeks ago a friend brought me some beautiful cherry tomatoes from her garden and this lovely keto tomato tart was born. You can also refer to it as a galette or crostata if you’re feeling fancy. Nobody will believe it’s low carb and gluten free!
I wanted to post this gorgeous keto tomato tart as soon as I made it, but to be honest I’ve been experiencing a little bit of writer’s block lately. I’ve got lots of keto recipes completed and ready to post – but as delicious as they are, trying to come up with something to say about them has been like pulling teeth.
Like the whiteness of these blank pages hurts my eyes.
In trying to figure out why my brain is broken lately, all I can say is that between the chaotic Summer we had with a constant stream of house guests, Mr. Hungry working nights for a month, and a rocky start to homeschooling this year I’m just plain burnt out.
I know you guys can relate in one way or another to that feeling, because who ISN’T burnt out lately?
Anyhoo, this month Mr. Hungry and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary (awwwwwww!) and this past weekend we went to Rhode Island on a mini-vacation. Determined to unplug completely, for the first time in YEARS I didn’t even pack my laptop – I just turned everything off and left.
It was GLORIOUS.
Perfect weather, lots of fishing, delicious seafood, and some great times with old friends made for the most amazing four days EVAH.
While I hated for it to end, I find that even that short break with no commitments has me ready to get back to work and posting this next level keto tomato tart.
I’m not promising Shakespearean level prose or anything, but at the very least I’ll be able to string some sentences together in a coherent manner. Possibly with a few lame jokes thrown in for good measure. Or not.
Meanwhile, this rustic and delicious keto tomato tart should go on your list to make STAT!
Keto Tomato Tart
While this keto tomato tart was amazing with garden fresh cherry tomatoes, the beauty of the roasting process is that even if you’re using blander winter tomatoes, it will sweeten and concentrate the flavors in a lovely way.
The sweetness of the tomatoes is perfectly balanced with the earthy herbs, rich ricotta, a slight punch of garlic, and the salty crunch of the prosciutto to finish it off.
This savory low carb tomato tart is perfect for entertaining – you can even make them in miniature format to serve as a formal appetizer if you’re feeling fancy. Or just slice it into wedges and let people have at it. Either way it’s going to be a huge hit with your guests!
Though honestly this summer loving tomato crostata is so good that you’ll want to keep it all to yourself!
If there is room in your carb budget for it, I recommend serving this keto tomato tart with a crisp white wine – a nicely chilled Sauvignon Blanc would be perfection.
Again – that works whether you’re alone on the couch binge watching Netflix (no judgement, I’ve been there. Recently. ) or throwing a fancy dinner party with friends.
Whatever your plans, I promise you’ll want to include this gorgeous tomato tart recipe in them ASAP.
NOTES: Some people have had trouble with the crust staying together while hot, so I’ve added 2 tablespoons of beaten egg to the recipe to help the crust hold together better. If you have an egg allergy you can omit it, just wait for your tart to cool for at least half an hour before serving and it will hold together much better than when first out of the oven.Print
