Chard Tart Recipe
Free form tarts are a lot easier to make than traditional pies and tarts [Editor’s Note: I’ve had trouble with all the above but the recipe looks so good that I have to give it a try – DIY recipes, right?]. This spinach and chard tart uses those awesomely nutritious spring greens and some feta cheese to create a spanakopita-like flavor. Makes a killer spinach and chard tart.

- 1 cup flour
- ¼ cup fine cornmeal

- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- ¼ cup ice water

- Preheat oven to 400℉. Heat oil in a large pan. Thinly slice spinach and chard.
