Cook/Well-Being: VegWeek 2013

VegWeek 2013 kicks off today and runs through April 28th! The concept is simple; go meat free for 1 week and enjoy the bounty before us in the vegetable aisle or farmer’s market! Buying local is even better and fresher with lower cost transportation to get the goodies to you and less of those yucky carbon emissions to boot! So make the pledge and let me know how you feel afterwards. I am going to give it a go, too!

Let’s get started with this easy Meatless Monday favorite from What She’s Having :

Mini Tomato Chèvre Tart

 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

 1/4 cup all purpose flour

 1/3 cup cold butter, cut into cubes

 1/4 tsp salt

 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

 2 tbsp water

 3 eggs

 1 cup milk

 150 g goat cheese

 salt & pepper

 3 plum tomatoes, diced

 1/4 cup snipped chives


In a large bowl, combine flours, butter and salt with your hands until a it takes on a crumbly texture. (This can be done in a food processor too). Add liquids and stir till ingredients for a ball.

Press dough into a muffin tin. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine eggs, milk, cheese , chives and salt and pepper in a bowl.

Put some diced tomato in each muffin cup. Pour 1/3 cup of egg mixture into each muffin cup.

Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until filling is set.
