Spinach And Goats Cheese Tart Recipe
This recipe will serve 4 people, you can make 4 individual tarts, or one large one when I made them I went for 2 big tarts. There will be enough rough puff pastry for whatever you choose, probably extra if you make one big pie, if that’s the case, wrap the extra in cling film and chuck it in the freezer to use another time… or, stick some jam in it and bake a few homemade jam tarts.
I served my pie hot with mash, roasted root veg, and green veggies… and of course lashings of gravy. But it is also fantastic cold (I know this because I had it for lunch the next day, a welcomed break from salad, might I add). If you don’t fancy making enough pie for 4 people, half/quarter the recipe… or, make them all and freeze what you don’t need, then just defrost them tarts and warm through in the oven when you want them!
