Egg, spinach, rocket & feta breakfast tart

80 gm butter, coarsely chopped
1 leek, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1½ bunches spinach, trimmed and coarsely chopped
1½ bunches rocket, coarsely chopped
150 gm each ricotta and feta, coarsely crumbled
2 tbsp each coarsely chopped thyme and oregano
Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
8 filo pastry sheets
100 ml buttermilk
9 eggs, at room temperature
For drizzling: olive oil
Tomato relish
30 ml olive oil
½ Spanish onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
350 gm small tomatoes, such as baby grape
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp (20gm) brown sugar

1 Preheat oven to 180C. Melt half the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat, add leek and garlic and stir occasionally until starting to caramelise (6-7 minutes). Add spinach and rocket, stir until wilted (1-2 minutes), transfer to a colander to drain, then a bowl. Add cheeses, herbs and lemon rind, season to taste, mix well, set aside.
2 For tomato relish, heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until starting to caramelise (6-7 minutes). Add tomato, sauté until tomato begins to break down (4-5 minutes). Add vinegar and sugar, season to taste, cook until syrupy (2-3 minutes), then cool to room temperature.
3 Melt remaining butter and brush base and sides of a 20cm x 29cm loose-bottomed tart tin (see note), then line with a filo sheet, allowing pastry to overhang. Brush with butter, then lay over another filo sheet and repeat until filo is used. Spread spinach mixture in base, make 6 evenly spaced indentations in filling, set aside.
4 Whisk buttermilk and 3 eggs in a bowl to combine, season to taste, then pour onto spinach mixture. Crack remaining eggs into indentations and drizzle with oil. Brush pastry edges with butter and bake until tart is set and eggs are cooked medium (20-25 minutes). Serve with tomato relish.
