Leek tart

Yield: 1 9" tart

Measure Ingredient
2 bunches Leeks, white parts only
1 Sheet store-bought puff
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 bunch Scallions, chopped
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
1 pounds Gorgonzola or other blue
Cheese, crumbled


1. Heat oven to 350 F. Slice white part of each leek into ¼" rounds, and soak in large bowl of water to remove any sand.

2. On lightly floured work surface, roll puff pastry to ¼" thickness, about 12" in diameter. Press puff pastry into bottom and sides of 9" round or rectangular tart pan (with removable bottom).

Run rolling pin across top to trim. (Scraps can be wrapped in plastic and frozen for later use.) Carefully line pastry with aluminum foil, and weight with beans, rice, or pastry weights. Bake for 10-15 minutes. When pastry begins to color around edges, remove weights and foil, and continue to bake until pastry turns golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Place pan on wire rack, and let cool completely before filling.

3. While pastry bakes, drain sliced leeks, and assemble filling. In medium saute pan, warm olive oil over high heat. Saute leeks and scallions until soft, about 6 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Remove from heat.

4. Fill baked pastry shell with crumbled cheese, and top with sauteed leeks and scallions. Bake in back of oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese bubbles. Slice and serve immediately.
