When I used to live in the UK, I once took a train across the country from Scotland to England. It was an amazing train journey with beautiful landscape throughout.  That long train journey made me realize that people in UK drink a lot of tea (because they were sipping on it all the time!) just like Indians do however their tea and our chai is totally different. I remember making chai in my apartment one day when one of my flatmates who was from Ireland walked in and said “oh you are making coffee”, I said “no that’s tea” and she said wow so much milk, that definitely looks like coffee. Looks like she never had our Indian chai! 😐

Method

Thaw the Puff Pastry according to instructions on the package. Once thawed, roll the sheet into 10 x 10 inch square.  Leave 0.75″ inch margin on all sides and prick the center of the sheet all over with a fork. This way the center won’t puff up during baking.

Add parmesan cheese to the center of the sheet.

Top it with grape tomatoes halves and diced zucchini. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over.

Bake the zucchini tomato tart at 400 F degrees for 15-20 minutes or till it’s nice golden brown in color.

While the tart is the oven, make the balsamic glaze. To a pan add balsamic glaze, maple syrup and pinch of salt and pepper.

Bring the mixture to a boil and keep stirring till it thickens. This will take 3-4 minutes, be careful not to cook it too much else it will thicken a lot and you won’t be able to pour it over. You will know it’s done when it coats the back of your spoon. Remove pan from heat at this point.

Once the tart is done, take it out of the oven. Sprinkle fresh basil and crumbled feta cheese all over. Drizzle the prepared balsamic glaze on top. Serve immediately.

* Do not overcook the glaze, it clumps pretty quickly.
