עס ס געטינג לעבן אַז מאָל ווען מענטשן וואס זענען מאַזלדיק גענוג צו האָבן גרינס גאַרדענס זענען באַדעקן מיט קאַבאַק און צוקיני. סאַדלי, איך בין ניט איינער פון יענע מענטשן. אָבער, איך לעצטנס גאַט אַ בינטל פון די טייַער קראַק באָולז מיט כאַנדאַלז און איך האַלטן טריינג צו טראַכטן פון פאַרשידענע וועגן צו נוצן זיי. So far I’ve made Shepherd’s Pot Pies and Peach Cobblers in them and now these Summer Squash Tartlets.

Usually I make food family-style which just means I throw everything in one big pot which then gets thrown into one big bowl and then thrown onto our big plates. Dinner is literally thrown together…ha ha! But sometimes it’s nice to make individual servings – it’s easier to stick to a “normal” portion size, the food actually cooks a bit faster and most important (צו מיר), it’s just so much cuter!

These tartlets have a gluten-free dough which amazingly (צו מיר) came out pretty well though I’m sure it would be prettier in others’ hands. While the dough was resting in the fridge, I made the filling. You can make whatever filling you want. I chose a tofu ricotta that I mixed with caramelized onions.

You could make the ricotta with cashews or other nuts (I have a hazelnut ricotta recipe דאָ) but honestly, ricotta made with tofu is my favorite. I topped the tartlet with alternating rounds of zucchini and yellow summer squash and after they were cooked, some diced tomatoes.

These tartlets are so pretty, they would be wonderful for special parties or brunches, bridal showers or if you need to impress the in-laws. They taste great served hot or cold. If you need a new way to use up your zucchini and squash, דעם איז עס. And if like me, you don’t have a vegetable garden, my Summer Squash Tartlets with Caramelized Onions and Tofu Ricotta will make it look like you do. האַנאָע האָבן!

10 Tbs. cold water

קוקינג אָיל שפּריץ

 

For the Filling­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

2 גרויס אַניאַנז

1 Tbs. קאַנאָלאַ אויל

1 בלאָק עקסטרע-פעסט טאָפו, ויסגעשעפּט

¼ cup vegan cream cheese

3 Tbs. וועגאַן גרייטיד פּאַרמעסאַן

1 tsp. דאַר אָרעגאַנאָ

1 tsp. דאַר באַסיל

1 tsp. קאָשער זאַלץ

1 tsp. קנאָבל פּודער

½ צפּ. שוואַרץ פעפער

2 Tbs. פריש לימענע זאַפט

2 Tbs. פריש פּעטרעשקע, chopped

1 large yellow squash

1 גרויס צוקיני

1-2 פלוים טאַמאַטאָוז, chopped

 

To make the crust: פּרעהעאַט די ויוון צו 350 דיגריז. In a large bowl combine the flour, קסאַנטהאַן גומע, salt and thyme and mix well. Add the vegan butter to the flour and cut using a pastry cutter or a fork until the mixture is crumbly. לייגן 5 Tbs. of water to the mixture and continue to cut with the pastry cutter or fork. Keep adding water, איינער טבס. אין אַ צייַט, until the mixture forms a dough. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 15 מינוט.

When the dough has chilled, unwrap it and divide it into 2 disks. Spread flour on your work surface and using a rolling pin, roll each disk until it measures about 10 inches in diameter and is very thin.

Use the ramekin or pie pan as a guide to cut the dough. Place it face down on the dough and cut a circle of dough around it with a paring knife. Make the circle about an inch larger than the ramekin.

Sprinkle a bit of flour into the ramekin and put the circle of dough into it, shaping it carefully to mold it to the ramekin. You can make pleats at the top by pinching off the dough all around the top. Spray the inside and top of the crust with cooking oil Repeat with the rest of the dough and the remaining ramekins. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust gets browned a bit. Remove the crusts from the oven and set aside until ready to fill them.

 

צו מאַכן די פילונג: Cut the onions into halves and then cut each half into thin slices. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Cook the onion slices over medium heat, סטערינג אָפֿט, ביז זיי זענען בראַונד און קעראַמאַלייזד. It takes about 30 minutes to fully caramelize and shrink down.

While the onions are cooking, make the ricotta. אין אַ גרויס שיסל, crumble the tofu into pebble-sized pieces. Add the cream cheese, גרייטיד פּאַרמעסאַן, herbs, spices and lemon juice. מישן צו פאַרבינדן. טעם פֿאַר געווירץ. שטעלן באַזונדער.

Using a mandolin, slice the squash and the zucchini into paper-thin rounds.

 

To make the tartlets: Fill each tartlet crust with a few spoons of the ricotta. Top with some caramelized onions. Lay the squash and zucchini rounds on top. I like to alternate them so it’s yellow, green, yellow, green, עטק. Lay each round on top of the last one so it covers half of it until you have completed the circle. Sprinkle some salt on top and bake for 30-35 minutes until the tartlet browns a bit. Remove from the oven and let cool. Top with chopped tomatoes, זאַלץ און פעפער. דינען וואַרעם אָדער קאַלט.
