Spinach Wheel With Zataar


  • 1 Portion savoury pastry

  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil

  • 1 Clove Garlic peeled and halved

  • 500 g trimmed fresh chopped

  • 70 g grated parmigiano reggiano

  • 1 Egg lightly beaten

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 1 tablespoon zatar


  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 425°F/220°C.

  • 2.

    Roll the pastry into a rectangle, place on a pastry sheet, prick with a fork, and bake until done, about 15 minutes.

  • 3.

    Heat the oil in a large skillet.

  • 4.

    Add the garlic one minute.

  • 5.

    Add the spinach, cover, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

  • 6.

    If there is a lot of liquid, cook uncovered until it evaporates.

  • 7.

    Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Now quickly stir in the egg with a fork.

  • 8.


  • 9.

    Spread over the tart base.

  • 10.

    Scatter the zataar (or mixture of sesame seeds, herbs, and lemon zest, given below) evenly over top.

  • 11.

    Bake until the crust is crisp and the top very hot, about 20 minutes.

  • 12.

    Slice the tart onto a large cutting board, cut into diamonds, and serve straight from the board.


*Zataar is a spice mix you can buy in Middle Eastern shops or specialty spice shops. Just as tasty, however, is the following simple mix you can do yourself: 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, and the zest of one lemon.
