It feels like summer with this savoury tomato tart. Speckled with vibrant hues of red, yellow and green, a bite into gluten-free treat will release fresh, healthy and delicious flavours of quinoa, heirloom tomato, cheese, sunflower seeds and more.

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsps sunflower seeds
  • 75 g soft goat's cheese
  • ½ cup pouring cream
