Savoury Gluten Free Tart

So if I'm being honest, I can barely be bothered cooking dinner most weeknights because, like everyone else in the world, I'm tired. When I don't cook dinner, I will either have a breakfast meal like muesli and yoghurt, a toasted cheese sandwich, cheese and biscuits, or prawn pad thai from my local thai restaurant. The latter occurs the least because who can actually afford to eat out numerous times a week?? My point is, I'm not perfect. No one is. Healthy eating is hard sometimes, you have to be prepared to make most things from scratch, and sometimes you just really want those hot chips or the take-away pad thai! And there's nothing wrong with that as long as it's just sometimes.

What I am getting at is that if you make something that can yield more than one meal - you're laughing! And this savoury gluten free tart is exactly that. Make it one day, then you have lunch and/or dinner for the next day, and even the day after that if you're just one person. The base doesn't go soggy, and you can eat it hot or cold. There's no losing here. And it's much cheaper than take-away.
