Sprout and Sage Polenta Tart

If like us all, you still have a few sprouts lurking at the back of the fridge, then this Sprout and Sage Tart is a great gluten free, dairy free, healthy dish and it’s perfect for using up seasonal vegetables and herbs.

Using polenta as the crust means the tart is light and butter free. Plus the inside mix uses plant based dairy and doesn’t need cheese, milk or cream.
Im really pleased this turned out so well, especially the crust, I hope you love it as much as I do. This would be great with a host of fillings, so get experimenting! Plus I’m pretty sure you could omit the eggs and add more yoghurt to make the dish vegan too.
