I love a good veg tart.
So simple to make and I love the way that you can bulk them up with whatever you had on hand – so they’re budget friendly too!
I tend to make tarts like these so I have them on hand work work lunches – delicious cold (so I don’t stink out my office colleagues!) or warm (for those days I work at home). Or if you’re in a rush, grab a couple of slices out of the freezer and steam some extra greens – speedy and filling dinner!
- 7 medium eggs
- 130g (approx) salmon fillet*
- 150g broccoli
- 3 large celery sticks
- 20g olive oil
- 25g milk of choice (I mostly use unsweetened high protein almond milk)
- 1 tsp freshly chopped dill
- salt and pepper to taste
*If you don’t have a salmon fillet, just used plain tinned salmon, and skip the cooking part.
Start by pan cooking the salmon, so it is almost cooked – it will finish in the oven. Then break it in to small pieces.
Steam your broccoli – I did a couple of minutes in the microwave. And then use a knife to diced it evenly.
Finely dice your celery.
Place the broccoli, celery and salmon into a bowl.
In a separate bowl (I prefer a decent sized measuring jug because it pours well), break all of your eggs. Then add in the dill, salt and pepper, milk and oil and then whisk really well.
Pour the egg mix into the salmon and veg mix and then fold together until even.
Pour into a lined baking dish (21cm x 21cm) and place into a preheated 180C oven.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until it is golden and the egg is mostly set …. as the egg is still hot it will continue to cook as it cools when you remove it from the oven.
Allow to cool a little before slicing into 9 squares.
You can gently reheat this one in a microwave from the fridge. Or if you are going to freeze it, lay it between 2 sheets of kitchen paper before you do, as this will help to absorb the ice crystals as it defrosts.
If macros are important to you, here are the details for 1 slice (that is 1/9 of the total dish)
If you want an easy switch to make this a vegetarian option, omit the salmon and replace with a few handfuls of sliced mushrooms – I like the swiss brown variety!
