Low-Carb Pumpkin, Feta & Cranberry Tart

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Make the pie crust as per the recipe here: Multipurpose Keto Pie Crust

Step 2Slice the pumpkin in half, remove the seeds and cut into wedges about 1 cm thick. I used Hokkaido as it doesn't require peeling and has fewer carbs than butternut squash. If using a different type of pumpkin, you will also need to remove the skin. Place the pumpkin of a baking tray, toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of ground coriander and a pinch of salt.

Step 3Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes until soft and golden.

Step 4Peel and finely dice the onion and garlic (keep separate). Blitz the kale in a high speed food processor until fine.

Step 5Place the cranberries on another baking tray with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar. Mix well and roast in the oven for 15 minutes until soft.

Step 6Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and gently fry on a medium-low heat for about 3 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and fry together for 1 further minute. Add the kale plus 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 tablespoon of coconut aminos, a pinch of salt and fry for 1 more minute. Remove from the heat.

Step 7Place the kale mix in the baked crust. Add crumbled feta, pumpkin, cranberries and chopped fresh coriander (reserve a little bit of each to sprinkle on top before serving). Finally, sprinkle with lemon zest.

Step 8Crack open the eggs into a cup. Whisk using a fork until combined. Season with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Evenly pour the eggs over the filling to fill the sides. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the eggs set.

Step 9To serve, top with the remaining feta, pumpkin, cranberries and a sprinkling of fresh coriander. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for 1 month.
