It’s still August, but it definitely feels like the end of summer here in Minnesota, especially when you are out early in the morning.
So when I found the beautiful heirloom tomatoes at the local farmers market, I had to get some.
Heirloom tomatoes are something that screams summer to me, and I wanted to enjoy them before the summer is completely gone.
Right away I knew what I wanted to make.
A tart is a great way to showcase them.
My husband recently bought me a new set of kitchen knives, and I love them.
The wood block that holds the knives looks great in our kitchen, too.
This serrated knife is a life-saver when it comes to slicing tomatoes.
Isn’t it just beautiful?!
I served individual tart pieces with some fresh green leaves and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
This was absolutely delicious!
The flaky tart, cashew cream “cheese”, fresh tomatoes, and sweet and tangy balsamic glaze…
Mmm, mmm, mmm…
Cashew cream “cheese”: cashew nuts (soaked in water), lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, soy milk, nutritional yeast, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, salt
