How to make Spinach & Cottage Cheese Tart

  1. Boil the spinach in 1 cup water.
  2. After that drain as much liquid as you can and chop finely. Chop the cottage cheese as well and mix.
  3. To preparing the pastry:
  4. Mix flour, butter & salt until the mixture resembles crumbs. Add the egg. Use water to bring the pastry together. Be careful not to overknead it. Wrap it in a cling film and let it rest for at least 30 min in fridge.
  5. Now roll the pastry about 1/2 inch thicknesses between two sheets of cling film.
  6. Line the pastry in the tin and let it rest for 30 min in the fridge.
  7. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  8. Now blind bake the pastry for 20 min.
  9. After 20 min it should be light brown in the edges.
  10. To preparing the filling:
  11. Saute onions in 1 tsp oil. Add in the spinich & cottage cheese mixture. Mix well.
  12. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let it cool.
  13. Now add eggs, cheese and mix.
  14. Now fill the pastry with the mix and bake to 12-15 min or until done.
  15. Let it rest for 20 min in the tin. Un-mould after that and cut.
  16. Enjoy!!

My Tip:

1. All the ingredients for pastry should be chilled for a flaky pastry. 2. Adding cheese brings out the oomph in this dish. You can choose any kind as parmesan or cheddar. Even pizza cheese works just fine. 3. If the pastry base puffs up during blind baking just press it back with a teatowel.
