Creamed Leek Tart

Share

Everyone in my house loves this Creamed Leek Tart – it is a delicious creamy treat that I make for Sunday lunch at least once a month. You can’t beat the slow sautéed leeks with a creamy eggy flavored filling.

Start by making pastry crust and chill the dough in the refrigerator for one hour. Blind bake the pastry in the oven with baking beans. Sauté leeks in butter slowly over low heat. Add flour, eggs, cheese and mustard. Once the pastry is blind baked, transfer the leek filling to the tart shell. Bake in the oven. Before slicing, rest the tart for 15-20 mins. Serve warm.

To make my Creamed Leek Tart, you will need the following ingredients:

1

Make dough

1h

Pulse 300 grams of plain flour and 140 grams of butter in a food processor. When the mixture resembles fine crumbs, add 1 egg yolk and 4 tablespoons of iced water. Pulse until it comes together as dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

Heat 85 grams of butter in a pan. Sauté leeks in the butter for 20-25 mins over low heat, until soft. Stir often.
