Haloumi, Lamb and Spinach Tart

Haloumi, Lamb and Spinach Tart


Be the first to make this!

This is fundamentally a leftover dish so you could use any ingredients though the lamb, spinach , tiomato paste, haloumi and risotts worked really well with the filo. I layered the ingredients in the filo.


Serves: 4 

  • a good splash of olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 100g spinach
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 300g leftover roast lamb, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sun-dried tomato paste
  • 1/2 glass white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 box filo pastry
  • 100g grated haloumi
  • 100g ricotta or other soft cheese
  • 2 sliced tomatoes

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees C.
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large pan and add the chopped onion; cook for around 4 minutes until see-through. Add the spinach a handful at a time, it will quickly compact as it cooks creating space in the pan for more. Once you have added all the spinach, grind in some black pepper then set aside.
  3. Mix the lamb with the sun-dried tomato paste and add enough white wine so you end up with a sticky, but not watery, mixture. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Rub a little olive oil in a 2.5cm deep, medium-sized baking dish and roll out the filo pastry. Line the dish with a layer of pastry, brush with olive oil then add another layer, letting the pastry overlap the dish and itself. Spread the ricotta over the pastry and add half the grated haloumi.
  5. Layer another couple of sheets of filo, oiling as before. Spread the spinach mixture out on this layer then cover with a couple more sheets of filo. On this, the top layer, spread out the lamb mixture, then decorate with the sliced tomato. Sprinkle the remaining haloumi over the top with a drizzle of olive oil, bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
