Gluten free tart with corn crust & Italian roast veggies

casserole dish with polenta crust tart topped with roasted tomatoes, onions, garlic and fresh basil in white dish on grey tile backgroundThis gluten free tart is a beautiful addition to any table – whether it be brunch, lunch, dinner or tapas! The corn crust adds a beautiful, subtle sweetness while being both dairy-free & egg-free! The addition of polenta helps to keep it moist, so it’s not dry like many other gluten free crusts.

In true Italian fashion, the beauty of the dish is the simplicity of it, allowing you to savour the dazzling flavour of a few whole food ingredients rather than distracting your tastebuds with a confusing myriad of flavours, creams, butters, sodium and other nasty additives.
