7
In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

Cut in shortening using two knives or a pastry cutter until the mixture is grainy and resembles a fine meal.

Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and set aside on the counter for 30 minutes.

Reduce oven to 375 F.

Place pie crust in pie plate or individual baking dishes, pinching edges to form a decorative border.

Drizzle with remaining olive oil and a pinch of salt.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown, and spinach and tomatoes are wilted.

This tart is super easy and forms the perfect base for tons of variation: add squash, swiss chard or collard greens, roasted broccoli or cauliflower, etc - even add tomato sauce for a heartier tart!
