Gluten Free Vegan Roasted Vegetable Tart

Jules Pie Crust:
1 cup Jules All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
5 tablespoons shortening, butter or non-dairy alternative (like EarthBalance)
3 tablespoons Cold Water
1 medium Red Onion, coarsely chopped
1 Roma Tomato, sliced
1/4 pound Spinach
1 Bell Pepper (Red, Orange or Yellow), cut into strips
1 Zucchini, sliced into rounds
1/4 - Asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch long segments
2 tablespoons +2 Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cloves Roasted Garlic, crushed*
1 Potato or Sweet Potato, parboiled and sliced, if desired

For the filling:

Preheat oven to 425 F

Place zucchini, asparagus and bell pepper on a baking sheet or dish and drizzle with olive oil and salt, tossing lightly to coat.

Place vegetables in oven and roast for 30-45 minutes or until tender.

While vegetables were roasting, prepare pie crust.

For Jules Pie Crust:

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

Cut in shortening using two knives or a pastry cutter until the mixture is grainy and resembles a fine meal.

Add cold water until dough can be shaped into a ball -- err on the side of wet rather than dry and crumbly!

Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and set aside on the counter for 30 minutes.

Reduce oven to 375 F.

Place pie crust in pie plate, pinching edges to form a decorative border.

Place roasted vegetables in first (including parboiled potatoes, if desired), adding red onions, Roma tomato slices and spinach on top.

Drizzle with remaining olive oil and a pinch of salt.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown, and spinach and tomatoes are wilted.

Serve hot or cold.

To Roast Garlic:
Cut the the top 1/2" off of a head of garlic. Wrap the whole head in foil with a light drizzle (1 TSP) of olive oil.
Roast at 400 F for 30-35 minutes, or until soft.
