Spinach Tart

(recipe, Savita Iyer-Ahrestani)


This quick dish makes for a hearty meal on a winter’s night and is one of the easiest ways to get children to eat some form of spinach.


  1. 3 Tbsp. butter
  2. 3 Tbsp. flour
  3. ¼ tsp. salt
  4. 1 cup milk
  5. 1 package Seabrook Farms frozen creamed spinach or similar item
  6. 2 cups grated Gruyère cheese
  7. 2 sheets premade puff pastry


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, make a thick white sauce by melting the butter and then blending in the flour. Add the salt and cook over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly, and cook until the sauce is smooth and thick. Remove from the heat.
  3. Place the puff-pastry sheets on a baking sheet and poke holes in the pastry with a fork.
  4. Mix the spinach into the white sauce, then spread the mixture across the pastry sheets.
  5. Sprinkle the Gruyère cheese over the top and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown and the pastry is crispy.
