Spinach and Blue Cheese Tart

This is a “clean out the cupboard” recipe. No running to the store for anything–pantry cuisine. All of the ingredients for this spinach and blue cheese tart were on hand to inspire this delicious tart with flaky whole wheat olive oil crust.

Sundried tomatoes, eggs and baby spinach called from the fridge, “Use me up.” Onions and garlic—I always have them, ready for last minute dinner ideas. Deer Valley’s nicely veined mild housemade blue cheese charmed its way into these tarts–there was some  leftover from the retirement party my food and beverage peers threw for me last week.  Any good quality blue cheese works makes delicious spinach and blue cheese tart.

This crust is made with whole-wheat flour because I love the nuttiness it adds to pastry. And I had whole wheat flour in my cupboard.

When mixed with oil, whole-wheat pastry flour makes an incredibly flaky butter-free crust. You can substitute regular whole-wheat flour or all-purpose flour too. Don’t run to the store–clean out the cupboard. Pantry cuisine.
