Ingredients

9 inch pie shell (9 inch)
4 each japanese eggplants
*
cup olive oil
1 x salt and black pepper
*
3 each tomatoes
2 large eggs
1 each egg yolks
*
1 ½ cups cream
light, or half and half
1 x nutmeg
*
½ cup basil
loosely packed, thinly sliced
*
½ cup cheese
guyere or provolone, grated

Directions

PREPARE THE TART DOUGH.

Partially prebake it and set it aside.

Preheat the oven to 450F.

Slice the eggplants into rounds or diagonal pieces about ⅜ inch thick.

Coat a baking sheet with a film of oil; then lay down the eggplant slices.

Brush the surface generously with plenty of oil so the eggplant will not dry out; excess oil can always be blotted up later with paper towels.

Season with salt and pepper and bake in a 450F-500F oven until the eggplant slices are lightly browned and tender, but not completely soft, about 10 minutes each side--they will bake further in the tart.

Bring a pan of water to a boil, plunge in the tomatoes to a count of 10, and immediately remove them to a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking.

When they have cooled, peel them, then slice off ends, pull out the pulp and seeds with your fingers, then slice them into rounds as thick as the eggplant.

(If the tomatoes are large, then cut the slices in half.)

Set the oven heat at 375F; beat the eggs and the egg yolk together then whisk in the light cream.

Add ½ teaspoon salt, several grindings of black pepper, a few scrapings of nutmeg, and the basil.

Scatter the cheese over the surface of the partially baked crust.

Loosely layer the eggplant and tomatoes over the cheese; then pour the custard over all.

Bake the tart until the custard is set and the surface is golden--about 35 to 40 minutes.

Let it cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

This tart would go nicely with a California pinot noir.

Makes one 9-inch tart.
