6 winter onion bulbs, sliced
1 bunch of kale, stems removed, shopped or torn into bite size pieces
1/2 T olive oil
*Optional—include chopped radish greens with the kale
¼ cup cream
1 T olive oil
4-5 chives, coarsely chopped
2 dill fronds, thickest stems removed
½ tsp chopped fresh spring garlic
4oz goat cheese
1 14oz sheet of puff pastry, ready to use
½ inch thinly sliced spring garlic neck, or about ½ a medium garlic head
2-3 radishes, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat ½ T olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add winter onions and cook until they begin to soften. Add the kale, a small pinch of salt and a splash of water. Cover and reduce heat to low.
In a food processor combine cream, 1 T olive oil, chives, dill and garlic. Process until the cream just begins to thicken. Add the goat cheese and process until the mixture is smooth.
Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry on the parchment. Spread the goat cheese and herb mixture over the pastry dough, leaving about 1/2 inch on all sides. Lightly score the outer boundary of the cheese with a knife, being careful not to cut all the way through the pastry.
Staying inside the knife-drawn boundary, sprinkle the garlic slices on top of the cheese spread, then top with the kale and onions. Spread the kale and onions around with a spoon to create a nest for each egg, but don’t add the eggs yet. Put the tart in the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove the tart and crack an egg into each pre-made nest. Return the tart to the oven to finish baking for another 10 minutes. The tarts are done when the bottom of the crust is golden brown and the egg whites are set, but yolks are not yet hard. You may need to experiment to find the cooking time and temp that works best for your oven.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with radish slices, salt and pepper. Any leftover cheese spread makes a great veggie dip or sandwich spread. Try it on a thick slice of toast topped with lettuce or spinach and some lightly salted radish slices.
