Tips To Make This Tomato Cheese and Spinach Filo Tart Recipe
- Use ready rolled filo pastry sheets. You could use puff pastry but filo pastry is healthier.
- Don’t worry if your filo sheets hang over the edge of your baking tray. Just trim off the excess around the edges.
- I find its easiest to microwave the spinach. It just takes less time to cook that way.
- Use cherry tomatoes rather than normal tomatoes. Their sweetness contrasts with the tart taste of the goats cheese.

Tomato Cheese and Spinach Filo Tart Recipe
If you can’t get or don’t like goats cheese or just fancy a change use another hard cheese instead like mozzarella or cheddar.
I’d love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe 5* if you like it! 🙂
- Low fat cooking spray
- 6 sheets of filo pastry
- 1 tbsp milk
- 180 g baby spinach
- 250 g cherry tomatoes chopped
- 80 g hard goats’ cheese grated
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 200C fan.
- Lightly spray a baking sheet / tray with the cooking spray.
- Lay the first sheet of filo pastry onto the baking sheet / tray, spray it lightly with the cooking spray, then place the second sheet on top, spray that lightly and repeat the process until all the sheets are done.
- Brush the milk around the edge of the filo pastry sheets.
- Microwave / cook the baby spinach as per the bag’s instructions and then drain it thoroughly. My preferred way of doing this is by putting the spinach in a sieve and pressing the water out of it by using the back of a spoon.
- Distribute the spinach evenly over the top of the pastry then make a layer of the cherry tomatoes.
- Crumble and sprinkle the grated cheese over the top.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Cook in the centre of your oven for 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is bubbling. Remove and serve.
