Spinach and goat cheese are usually paired together in dishes like quiche or pasta; paired with pumpkin or butternut squash, they bring color and heft to a tart that can be served for breakfast or dinner.
This tart is a showstopper that's as lovely to look at as it is to eat. While baking, it puffs up all big and proud, and the filling is soft and pillowy once you bite in. I know vegetarians often get stuck with a tart as the default option for a special dinner, especially come holiday time, and I think it can be a bit of a cop out. I mean, can't we come up with anything else that says 'festive'? But I make an exception for this tart. It deserves pride of place at the table. It definitely had pride of place in my tummy this week!
