Zucchini Puff Pastry Tarts

This is a quick and easy appetizer if you use ready-made frozen puff pastry sheets. If I had any on hand, I would also sprinkle in chopped fresh basil beneath the zucchini and squash slices. I also think goat cheese would work nicely with this. I think I'll add sliced mushrooms too next time I make this.

Zucchini Puff Pastry Tarts

1-2 sheets of ready-made frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 small zucchini, sliced into coins
1 small yellow summer squash, sliced into coins
handful of sun-dried tomatoes, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I've used mozzarella or sharp cheddar)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F.
  2. Cut each sheet in half.
  3. Place puff pastry onto baking sheets, prick several times with a fork, and bake about 10 minutes until they turn a light golden color.
  4. Pull the pre-baked sheets from the oven and sprinkle with shredded cheese and sun-dried tomato strips. Arrange zucchini slices on top, alternating colors. Sprinkle with a little more shredded cheese.
  5. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until cheese melts and zucchini is tender.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack if not serving immediately.

What other toppings would you put?

So pretty! I'm not a fan of zucchini, but I'd eat that.

I think I learned to love zucchini when I was a kid just because of how often we ate it in the summers since our backyard garden's 2 zucchini plants were very very productive. Back then, I only liked zucchini cooked in one particular way. Now I keep trying to find new ways of cooking it.

*makes note to ask hubby to see if there is any dairy-free frozen pastry at the supermarket*

I have a goats' cheese cheddar-a-like that does not upset my guts and so if we can find the pastry we are set to go!

sounds like a possibility! Maybe try frozen phyllo dough? This thread makes it sound like there should be vegan frozen phyllo options out there.

I read somewhere that aged cheese has less lactose in it. And apparently cheddar cheese has no lactose.
