Add tomato, sauté until tomato begins to break down (4-5 minutes). Add vinegar and sugar, season to taste, cook until syrupy (2-3 minutes), then cool to room temperature.
  • 03
  • Melt remaining butter and brush base and sides of a 20cm x 29cm loose-bottomed tart tin (see note), then line with a filo sheet, allowing pastry to overhang. Brush with butter, then lay over another filo sheet and repeat until filo is used. Spread spinach mixture in base, make 6 evenly spaced indentations in filling, set aside.
