I present you with this light, vegetarian and deliciously healthy tart stuffed with tasty, oven-roasted potatoes, sautéed spinach and melted cheese.
Potatoes are such a fun and versatile ingredient. Naturally fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free and, of course, gluten-free. Packed with fiber, and lots of important nutrients which, among other things, may help lowering your blood pressure, lower your blood cholesterol, and support your immune system. Potatoes are a great source of potassium, iron, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. Did you know that potatoes have more potassium than bananas, and more vitamin C than tomatoes?!? Simply amazing!
In my recipe today I used yellow potatoes. Soft and subtly sweet. Rich and buttery. Flavorful and incredibly tasty, especially when baked to perfection, with a sprinkle of fresh rosemary and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
You can serve this tart as you would for a quiche, for brunch or as a light dinner with a big green salad. Either way, this step-by-step recipe will show how easy it is to make.
I used frozen puff pastry for the dough, which makes the job super-fast. Just thaw the pastry, partly bake the potatoes savored with rosemary, sauté the onions with fresh baby spinach, assemble the tart (don’t forget the cheese!!) and throw in the oven. So easy, beautiful and delicious.
