Heirloom tomato tart

Name: Jennifer Miller
Base: Falls Church
Recipe: 1 piece frozen puff pastry, thawed 1 egg white 4 medium tomatoes (heirloom in different colors) 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard sea salt 1 shallot, thinly sliced and slices separated into rings 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to about a 12- by 15 rectangle. Place on the prepared pan and flip over a 1/2-inch border, using water to hold down the edges and then crimping with a fork. Whisk the egg white with 1 tablespoon water, and brush this over the edge of the tart. Prick the inside of the tart in several places with the fork. Par-bake until lightly browned and slightly cooked in the center, 12-15 minutes. Let cool slightly. Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes in half through the equator, then gently squeeze to remove seeds and excess liquid. Slice into 1/8 to 1/4 inch-thick slices. Spread the prepared crust evenly with the mustard, then layer the tomatoes on top in alternate colors, overlapping them by about 1/2 inch and arranging them tightly within the edges (they will shrink a bit). Season well with sea salt, then top with the shallot rings and thyme. Cook until the tomatoes are softened and the crust is cooked through in the center, 20-25 minutes.
