This French tomato pie with tangy dijon and creme fraiche filling is crazy delicious. In France this pie is very popular pie a.k.a tarte á la tomate, mutarde et herbes. French herbs and garlic play a beautiful part in this dish.
Keep your fresh tomatoes in room temperature instead of in the fridge. This way they’ll get tastier and sweeter in just couple of days. I did not spend time on making my own pie dough since you get pretty good ones ready made from the stores in Sweden.
