Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 11.02.10 copySummer is wonderful time to get together, laugh, go for long walks and spend the time with a loved once.

Everything is so colourful, so should be the food.  Nature gave us all the tools to do so, all the vibrant veggies and fruits are in season so you just have to use them. I came up with this tart because I had too much kefir left in the fridge so I had to use it up. And I loved finished product so much that I repeated it already quite a few times with different veggies. Like aubergine, zucchini and tomato or cauliflower, courgette. Possibilities are endless!

Here I decided to share the version with colourful peppers! It looks like a superstar on the table, capturing everyones attention. Its super easy to make, so more time to spend outside and makes a perfect light lunch with a side of salad:)

I hope you will give it a try. Its vibrant, flavourful and nutritious, so why not?;)
