Low carb crustless spinach and smoked trout tartlets

Preparation time : 40 mins Cooking time : 35 mins Servings : 4 - 6
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 4 spring onions - chopped
  • 200 g fresh spinach - roughly chopped
  • 100 g smoked trout - roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese - grated
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml milk
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 180 °C and grease a medium-sized pie dish (approximately 20 cm wide).

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the spring onions for 4–5 minutes, or until they have softened. Add the spinach and stir until it has wilted.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the remaining filling ingredients and stir gently to combine.

Stir gently. 

If using a pie dish, add this mixture to the pie dish, spreading evenly, and sprinkle over the grated cheese. [You would have added this already – see above]

Whisk the eggs and milk together. Whisk in the pepper and mustard and pour the egg mixture over the filling.

Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until set and lightly golden.
