Zesty Lemon Tart


PRINT RECIPE CARD

SERVES 8-10

This is an all-time favourite in our house. Most people know the tangy lemon is a fantastic source of Vitamin C (great immune booster during the colder months), but it can also benefit heart health, weight-loss and anaemia due to its assistance in iron absorption.
