Gorgeous Greens Tart

Gorgeous Greens Tart

This is seriously my new favourite thing to make when I’m having a friend over for lunch.


It’s super quick and looks impressive.


And tastes like you’ve gone to the trouble of making pastry for a tart.


Which of course you haven’t.


Plus it’s Low Carb. So a winner all round!


I adore this version with blue cheese and sage, but if you’re not a blue cheese fan check the variations for other ideas.


It makes 2 very large serves (or 3 small ones). Or you could halve the cheese for a lighter meal.


And I love the convenience of using frozen kale. But you could always cook your own if you prefer.


If you are using frozen kale / spinach, make sure you squeeze it dry before using or you’ll end up with a soggy tart. No one likes a soggy tart ;)

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 people

Ingredients

  • 100 g (3.5oz) almond meal
  • 200 g (7oz) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 bag frozen kale or spinach (250g / 8oz) squeezed dry
  • handful sage leaves optional
  • salad or sauerkraut to serve

Instructions

  1. Turn your oven to 200C (400F). Line the base and sides of a 24cm (9in) spring form pan with baking paper. If you can’t be bothered you can just grease but the eggs do like to stick!
  2. Spread almond meal over the base of your prepared pan. Mix cheese, eggs, kale / spinach and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Pour egg mixture over the almond meal.
  3. If using sage, scatter leaves over the top and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil to help the sage leaves crisp up.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set and the tart is puffing up and slightly golden. Allow to cool for a few minutes (or hourand serve wedges with the salad / kraut on the side.
