About the Butternut Squash Tart with Chard
This tart has an earthy quality to it. In part, that’s because of the whole wheat crust that I press into the tart pan. It has a denseness to it, which holds up nicely against the butternut squash and chard.
Roasting the butternut squash gives it a sweet, caramelized flavor. You’ll appreciate the combination of that with the chard, cooked with onion and garlic, seasoned with salt and pepper, and finished off with balsamic vinegar.
The eggs and cheese bind the vegetables together. I added pine nuts to add texture. A Butternut Squash Tart with chard is a perfect make-ahead dish. Reheat the tart, covered with foil, in a 350º F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, cool slightly, and serve.
