Tourta de bléa

Tourta de bléa

Depuis le temps que je voulais essayer, je me suis enfin lancée dans la fabrication de la tourta de bléa, avec les blettes du jardin de mes parents.

Derrière ce nom se cache la tourte aux blettes de Nice, un dessert pas comme les autres qui surprendra vos papilles.

    What a delicious and original recipe to taste Swiss chard … the whole family loved even the “Benjamin” ! I will introduce it to members of my AMAP (Association for the Maintenance of Peasant Agriculture) always on the lookout for traditional and tasty recipes to savor good organic vegetables !
