Versatile recipes that make mealtime a cinch for busy families are one easy way to free up time for moments with loved ones.
This Savory Leek, Raisin and Ricotta Tart is a perfect example of a dish that can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or even if your family gets a craving for a breakfast-for-dinner swap. Prep time is minimal before simply baking in the oven 40 minutes, meaning you can have a meal ready in under an hour. Plus, because it makes 10 servings, you'll have leftovers to help curb appetites later in the day.
To go along with the convenience and ease, it's made using California raisins as a key ingredient. Dried in the California sunshine, they come by their sweetness naturally as a fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-sodium ingredient that can also be enjoyed on their own as a snack that packs nutritional value with 6 percent of the daily value for potassium and 7 percent of the daily value for fiber in each serving.
