Low Calorie Vegetarian Tart

Low calorie and vegetarian, this easy tart uses pumpkin, spinach and ricotta on a Mountain Bread base – a great idea for a healthy, light lunch.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes


2-3 sheets of Mountain Bread™
600 gm pumpkin, diced into 2cm squares
1 large bunch spinach, washed
and stalks removed

3 spring onions, sliced
3 eggs
½ cup ricotta cheese, crumbled
200 ml milk
150 ml cream
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt



Pre-heat oven to 180c.

Oil and season the pumpkin, place in the oven until golden brown (approx 30 minutes). Roughly chop the spinach and steam for 5 minutes. Then cool and squeeze out excess water.

Grease a flat sided quiche dish well, and lay in the Mountain Bread™. Use a little water to seal the bread.

Mix together the eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg, cream and milk.

Put the pumpkin, spinach, spring onions and ricotta cheese randomly into the quiche dish. Pour egg mixture over gently. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until firm and golden brown. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
