Unfortunately, this Caramelized Onion & Eggplant Puff Pastry Tart does not have truffle oil. (Although I suppose if you really wanted to, you could add some. I mean, it’s a free country, right? Do what you want!) But! It does have caramelized onions, olives, roasted red peppers, and basil. It’s a veritable quadrifecta of deliciousness.
After I made this Leek & Olive Tart from Rikki Snyder’s food photography blog, I had a leftover puff pastry sheet sitting in the freezer, just begging to be made into something awesome. My little finger eggplants have been producing like crazy, so I roasted two of those, along with a small rosa blanca eggplant from the farmers market, as a topping. Everything else was simply what I had in the refrigerator that needed to be used. With a thrown-together recipe like this, there’s usually a high failure rate (at least in my kitchen, there is), so I piled on the toppings and crossed my fingers.
I try hard to make most of my recipes really easy, but this one does have quite a few steps to it. Is it worth it? OH YES IT IS WORTH IT. After my first bite, I turned to my husband and said, “Whoa. I think this is one of the best things I’ve ever made.” And then my husband took his first bite and turned to me and replied, “No, this is the best thing you’ve ever made. You are amazing.”

See guys? Best thing I ever made. But it’s not so much because I’m amazing. (Although you’re welcome to think that I’m amazing.) It’s because when you add caramelized onions, olives, basil, or roasted red peppers to anything, it’s going to be delicious. There’s just no way around it.
