Are your salad greens looking a little sad? Cheer up your leftover greens by cooking them down to intensify their flavour and colour in this tart that kicks food waste to the curb. Baby spinach, kale, and arugula are great candidates, but you can use whatever greens you have on hand, from hearty collards to tender beet greens to fragrant herbs.

  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled feta cheese

  4. Toss in cereal.
  5. Transfer into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom.
  6. Press the crust firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan.

  1. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic and green onions.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes or until softened.
