Tomato Tart With Ricotta And Brown Rice – gluten free

Tomato Tart With Ricotta And Brown Rice – gluten free

This tomato tart is a good chioce when you want to have a solution for a lunch to go, or just a complete meal ready when you have little time to have lunch.

It is a gluten free recipe! Fortunately I can eat gluten, but we’ve been noticing that it seems that gluten free food seems …lighter to digest. As they don’t have any contraindications…why avoid them?

This tomato tart has a crust made with brown rice. No flour. It is filled with ricotta cheese and it makes it a healthy and tasty tart, that can be eaten just by itself or with some green salad.

I found this recipe on Proud Italian Cook blog and changed only minor things. After writing this post I feel like preparing it again tomorrow for lunch 😉
