This Roasted Vegetable Tart is perfect party food. It makes a wonderful appetizer when cut into small pieces (Superbowl, anyone?) This is one of the vegetarian recipes that you will want keep making because everyone loves it, even the carnivores. This appetizer is also in my cookbook, The Greek Yogurt Cookbook. Yup, it has Greek yogurt in it! And with only 100 calories per tart, there’s no guilt involved.
You can experiment with different cheeses if you’d like—try adding shredded pepper jack for a spicy kick, or crumbled feta for a creamier result.

Isn’t that picture gorgeous? I wish I could take credit, but I can’t. Elisabeth Lariviere and Sylvia McArdle were the professional photographers and deserve all the credit for that beautiful shot. It’s also in my cookbook that’s available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and most major bookstores. 🙂
