  1. To make the pastry, blitz together the flour and spread in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 1 of the eggs and blitz again until a rough dough starts to form.
  2. Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper, to a thickness of 3mm, then use it to line a 24cm loose-bottom tart tin. Trim and discard any excess pastry then chill in the fridge for 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, set a nonstick pan over a medium-high heat and mist with cooking spray. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes until softened, then add the kale and cook for another 5 minutes until wilted. Stir in the beetroot and vinegar, then remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Fill the chilled pastry case with the cooled beetroot and kale mixture. In a bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk and remaining eggs, then season well. Pour the egg mixture over the tart filling and bake for 50 minutes until set and golden.
  5. Serve the tart hot or cold, garnished with the parsley leaves.


Save time by using a 320g ready-rolled shortcrust pastry sheet. Re-roll to fit the tin, then trim and discard any excess.
