This was a delicious and unique "tomatoe pie". I made it a point to seed & drain the tomatoes between sheets of paper toweling for about an hour before I made the galette and I was glad that I did because the finished product still was overly juicy. I think next time I will use roma or plum tomatoes as they are naturally meatier and less juicy. I did use egg substitute & cut back the oil to 1 tbsp with good success and chose the gorgonzola as this is what I had on hand & it made a very nice combination. Thank you Ebechan for sharing the recipe.

I didn't make this recipe exactly as it's written (I omitted the vinegar as I didn't have any, added canned asparagus spears on top of the tomatoes, didn't have fresh basil so sprinkled on some dry, added seasoned, sauteed tofu in place of feta), but as I made it, it came out great. Hubby said that this one was a keeper which means it's good. I didn't put enough salt so I'll add more next time, but even so it was pretty tasty and easy to make. I found I didn't need to squeeze any liquid out of the potatoes (couldn't really when I tried) so I found that step unnecessary.
