Belgian Savory Pie(Tarte al djote)

Tarte al djote is a traditional Belgian dish originating from the city of Nivelles.

This savory pie is prepared with a combination of cow’s milk cheese, chard, butter, onions, eggs, parsley, and pepper.

The base, or the dough for the pie is made with flour, butter, eggs, milk, yeast, and salt.

Once assembled, the pie is baked until golden brown, and it’s then served while still soft and hot, sprinkled with knobs of salted butter which will trickle down the pie.

It is believed that tarte al djote dates back at least to the 13th century.
