step 1

Add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a mixer and sift them.

step 2

Cut the butter in small pieces, add it to the mixer and mix in low speed until the mixture gets crumbly.

step 3

Continue by adding cold water and mixing in high speed. Once everything is well combined cover the dough with cling film and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

step 4

In a large pot add the olive oil, onion and spring onions and sauté them for 5 minutes.

step 5

Add the spinach, salt and pepper, and sauté them until the spinach softens and all of its liquids evaporate.

step 6

With the dough refrigerated, butter up a 25cm tart pan, place the dough in the middle and using your hand, press it along the bottom and up the sides of the pan to spread it evenly.

step 7

Using a fork, poke holes in the base of the dough (this prevents it from puffing up while baking) and bake it in a preheated oven for 20 minutes at 170ºC (340ºF).

step 8

In a large bowl, add the egg, dill, lemon zest, ricotta, feta and cream cheese, and mix them until well combined.

step 9

Continue mixing by adding the spinach until you have a well combined mixture.

step 10

Spread the mixture evenly over the tart.

step 11

Sprinkle a handful of pine nuts and bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 170ºC (340ºF).
