Spinach tartlets with fresh goat cheese
You cannot go wrong with these spinach tartlets, they are really easy and quick to prepare. That is why they are regularly on the menu of our lunches or gourmet brunches 😉
I know, winter is not quite the spinach season. But thank god for freezers! I always have a small stock of green vegetables whose season is long gone in this magical box. Spinach, peas or green beans are thus always at hand reach. Cheese is another story. Coming from Paris, we have always had such a big variety of cheeses. Here in Stockholm we have decided to eat local so we have had to do some research first as there does not seem to be a huge variety… but yes we have found a few that we really like! Please don’t ask for the names yet, we concentrated on the taste and origines first 😉
