Last Friday, food blogger Beatrice Peltre of La Tartine Gourmande was at “The Martha Stewart Show”. Bea prepared two savory tartines from her first cookbook. Everything looks tasty!
Tartines, which are open sandwiches, make great lunch. I love these two recipes because there are filled with colorful food. Plan ahead of time if you wish to serve them to your friends. Rest assured that the techniques are easy to follow and the ingredients are easy to find. She made:
- Tartine with Spring Vegetables, Smoked Salmon, Ricotta, and Basil Oil
- Tartine with Tarragon-Flavored Slow-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Proscuitto recipe
If you plan to serve both tartines for a stylish lunch with your girl friends this summer, start by roasting the cherry tomatoes. While the cherries are in your oven, prepare the basil oil, blanch the green vegetables and make the ricotta spread. Toast your favorite bread; select a loaf with a nice crust. You will find on Martha Stewart’s recipe the recipes with videos where Beatrice shared more tips on how to make her tasty tartines.
Beatrice talked about her experiences at the Martha Stewart Show on her blog. If you are looking for more deliciously healthy recipes, do not forget to grab your copy of her cookbook the next time you shop at a bookstore.
