Make the crust: 


Mix all the crust ingredients together and press the dough onto the base and sides of a greased tart dish of about 25 cm in diameter. 


Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.


Make the filling:


Mix all the filling ingredients together and pour into the prepared tart crust. 


Bake for 45 mins.


*Cooking and chopping the spinach.


Rinse the spinach under cold running water.


Remove the central stem and any thick veins.


Place the leaves in a baking bag with a teaspoon of water, fold over the bag (don’t knot it) and place it in the microwave oven with the opening underneath.


Cook for 5 mins on high. 


Empty the spinach out the bag and let it cool. 


Squeeze the spinach tightly to drain any excess moisture and then slice the bundles with a sharp knife.


Place the sliced spinach in a food processor and process until very finely chopped. 


This prevents any long, stringy pieces of spinach.
