  • 5. Whisk together cream cheese, yoghurt, eggs, salt and pepper until just combined, stir through fresh herbs and pour ¾ of the cheese mixture into the tart case.

  • 6. Scatter over leeks, asparagus and peas and dollop on the remaining cheese mixture and scatter the pine nuts over

  • 7. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until filling has set.

  • 8. To serve, cool slightly, scatter over the remaining fresh herbs and serve with a salad.
