Sorry about the silence... I don't know where the time has gone! Since my last post we have been to India and Amsterdam (which I will share soon), and we had Christmas and my birthday in-between. I have had a massive declutter at home and booked and planned my next trip to South Africa in March... I am going for just over four weeks and am unbelievably excited! :-)
I have been dying to try and make a biltong tart for a while now. I got the idea from my gran who said she'd tried one recently and sent me a few different recipes. I thought I'd try it with spinach, leeks and cheese and do a provita biscuit base which turned out really well! It was so easy to make and super-tasty... it is just quite rich, so a small slice with a side-salad is perfect!
Biltong Tart Recipe (Serves 4-6)
90g Multi-Seed Crackers/ Provita Biscuits, finely crushed
100g Grated Cheddar Cheese
60g Butter, melted
2 Leeks, sliced
Splash of Milk
100g Biltong, finely sliced
1Tbsp Olive Oil
Preheat the oven to 180 deg and grease a tart tin.
Mix the crackers, melted butter and half of the cheese and press into the tart tin.
Add the olive oil to a saucepan and fry the leeks until softened. Add the spinach and heat until wilted.
Whisk the eggs with a splash of milk and stir into the veg.
Stir in the biltong and season with salt and pepper.
Pour the mixture into the tart tin and cook for 40mins until the mixture has set and the top is just starting to brown.
Serve warm or cold with a green salad.
