Easy Greens Tart with Feta Cheese

Posted By Jessica Fisher On March 21, 2012 @ 7:30 pm In Main Dishes,Recipes,Side Dishes,URS | 16 Comments

Leftover greens combine with a buttery crust and a filling enhanced by eggs, cream, and feta cheese, to create a delicious easy greens tart.

This week on URS we’re talking dairy products. And how timely. I’m currently reading The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love [4], next month’s Booking It selection [5]. I’ve been fascinated by the author’s journey into subsistence farming, including her education in the ways of cows. Seriously. I must be a total farm geek because I am totally into the differences in milk cows and how the flavor of the milk can change, depending on what the cow eats. Fascinating!

So, here we are swapping milk, butter, and cheese recipes. Right on.

The recipe I’m bringing to the table includes all three. I didn’t plan it that way. It just happened in a serendipitous fashion.

In fact, this tart came about simply because I wanted to use up the leftover swiss chard and pea tendrils I had sauteed the night before.

Yes, I’m really getting into this fresh produce thing, aren’t I?

Anyway, I had a few cups of sauteed greens from the night before. I put them in a pie crust, topped them with feta, and poured a custard of egg and cream over the top. After baking and cooling, this gorgeous tart appeared, perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s chock full of good for you vegetables and enriched by a buttery crust, creamy custard and feta cheese. Yum!

You can easily use whatever leftover vegetables you have handy for an easy but elegant savory tart.
