Leftover Greens Savory Tart

Servings: 6
Author: Jess Smith via Inquiring Chef


  • 4 heaping cups roughly chopped greens of your choice
  • ½ cup chopped green onions (optional)
  • 3 eggs (whites and yolks)
  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Start with the Quick Savory Tart Shell Recipe recipe. Keep shell in refrigerator until you are ready to add filling.
  • Quickly sauté your chosen mixture of greens in olive oil or steam them so that they are tender but retain their color.
  • Mix eggs, egg whites and sour cream in a bowl until fully combined. Add remaining ingredients and stir several times.
  • Gently pour egg mixture over tart crust.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until filling is puffy and golden. Allow to cool on the counter for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • For extra flavor: Add one onion, thinly sliced and deeply caramelized with ½ a tablespoon each of butter and brown sugar to the egg mixture along with the greens. This would also get a boost from virtually any kind of cheese you have sitting in the fridge – feta, goat cheese or gruyere would all be great additions. If adding cheese, I recommend adding half into the egg mixture with the greens and sprinkling the rest over the top just before putting the tart into the oven.
