"This spicy tomato tart with mustard is a typical summer recipe, which is lovingly prepared in France during tomato season. I got to know this dish through my sister's French ex-boyfriend, who gave me his mother's family recipe and immediately won me over. But what can I say, unfortunately only the recipe has stayed... For the sake of convenience, this tart is made using ready-made puff pastry, but you can of course make your own. The buttery pastry is spread with a decent dollop of coarse Dijon mustard, which is tempered a little by the crème fraîche. You like it a bit spicier and more intense? Then simply adjust the ratio of crème fraîche and mustard to your taste! For the tomatoes, choose a colorful, aromatic mix of ox heart tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and vine tomatoes. If you like, you can also grate some Gruyère or Comté cheese on top."
