This is another way of making a “tarte soleil”, a.k.a. sunburst tart, with puff pastry (see the other tarte soleil here). In this sun tart à la provençale, the rays of the sun are covering the tart’s filling. It looks beautiful, and it tastes even better! This tart uses flavors from the region of Provence, hence the name à la provençale. I love provençale cuisine as it is light, healthy and flavorful!
I looked at many different French recipes for this tart. In the end, I made my own delicious recipe, which I am sharing with you today!
