Roasted Mediterranean Vegetable and Feta Tart

I really adore continental food, and different cuisines from around the world is something I love to discover and sample. One particular cuisine I really love is Greek Food. Whilst studying I had many Greek friends and when I visited them I relished eating eating Moussaka, Dolmades, Baklava, Tiropites, Tzatziki and Spanakopita. Being a vegetarian I find that there are many Greek dishes  that I can enjoy. I am particularly partial to olives, pickled peppers and especially the rich and creamy Greek yoghurt.

On our recent visit to Skiathos we enjoyed lovely Mediterranean vegetables and this tart I have made with oven roasted vegetables in phyllo pastry and feta has been inspired by my recent trip to Greece.

The light airy phyllo pastry, is the ideal component to the the delicious roasted vegetables and the slightly salty and crumbly feta on the top. The simple ingredients go well together and makes the tart colourful and delicious.
