Sea Beet, Smoke Bacon and Potato Tart

Sea beets are a green leaf vegetable that’s closely related to beetroots, sugar beets and Swiss chard. They are indigenous to most coastal areas such as Europe, North Africa and South Asia. Sea beets grow well in areas with a lot of sun and a moist environment. Sea beets were cultivated since the time of the ancient Romans, mostly used as food and medicine. Sea beets are a very healthy source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Studies have shown that they help prevent certain types of cancer, as well as promoting the health of most of our important bodily functions. For this recipe, we will be making a savory tart with sea beets as the primary ingredient.
