Soft cheese and vegetables tart
Savoury tarts are perfect for a light lunch. They are easier to make than it looks. We made this one for dinner, but saved the rest for the lunch next day, because it is equally good the next day. We mixed some of our favourite veggies in this savoury tart, it is so easy to put together. Be playful and use the ingredients that are in the season. Soft cheese and yogurt add an extra kick, a creamy, soft texture.

METHOD

  • Tart Crust

    Prepare and bake your tart dough. If you are going to bake our Savoury tart dough, you can click on the ingredient on the left and follow the instructions.

  • Filling

    Preheat your oven to 190ºC / 375ºF. Blanch the swiss chard with stalks in a pot of boiling salted water for 1 minute, shock them under cold running water, drain well. Roughly chop the swiss chard and place into a large bowl.

  • Filling

    Slice the bacon and add to a pan over a medium-high along with tbsp of olive oil heat and fry for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, trim and wash a large leek, remove the outer leaves, then slice it into 0.5cm/ ¼ inch pieces.

  • Filling

    When bacon becomes nice, golden and crispy, add sliced leek and continue to fry for 5 minutes to get nice soft leeks without any color. Transfer into a bowl with swiss chard. Let it cool to a room temperature. In a bowl mix together yogurt and eggs. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

  • Serve

    Spoon half of swiss chard and leeks into the prebaked pastry and crumble over half of the cheese. Repeat the same process with other half of the cheese, leeks and swiss chard. Pour in the yogurt mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and set. Leave to rest and cool for 15 minutes before serving.
