This is one terrific tart to try! Not only will it leave your taste buds satisfied, but it is also full of health benefits. The star ingredient is Safcol tuna providing not only delicious flavour but also a great source of heart-healthy omega-3 fat and protein. Tuna is a great source of iron which is needed for your immune system to work at its best. Iron assists oxygen to be transported to all the cells of your body.

Eggs provide more protein and the yolk is a good source of vitamin D. Vitamin D is needed to assist your body with calcium absorption and plays an important role in keeping your immune system working optimally. Feta and tasty cheese provide calcium which is essential for strong bones and teeth. Calcium also plays an important role in regulating normal muscle contractions. Cheese is also a good source of iodine and selenium which play an important role in allowing your thyroid to produce hormones which you need for a normal functioning metabolism.

Olive oil adds another healthy fat to the meal called monounsaturated fat. Both omega-3 fat and monounsaturated fat promote healthy cholesterol levels adding more ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and less ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

Capsicum contains vitamin C which also helps your immune system work at its best. Vitamin C is an important component for making collagen which is needed for healthy ligaments, tendons, and skin. Fennel contains fibre to keep you feeling fuller for longer as well as vitamin C and potassium which is needed to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level. Make sure you bring this recipe out next time you are in the mood for a tart.
