The one with the leek tart



What you'll need:
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 big tablespoons of mascarpone
  • 3 sheets of ready made dough (150 grams)
  • 3 leeks
  • blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste



Pre-heat the oven at 190 C / 375 F, and start by lining a pie tin with baking paper. Cover the thin with the dough and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the washed and chopped leeks until they get soft. Remove from the heat and let this cool down a bit.


 

In a bowl, mix the eggs, mascarpone and season this with salt and pepper. Add the leeks and give it all a good stir. Fill the pie tin with the mixture and crumble over the blue cheese. Let it bake in the preheated oven for about half an hour, or until the top has a nice golden colour. Wait for 10 minutes to cool down and remove the tart from the tin. Enjoy!

  12. I'm weird and don't like blue cheese, but I'm sure I could think of something to sub in! Feta might work for me. Today I put feta on zucchini "noodles" for lunch and it was fantastic!

    1. I can imagine feta cheese works out too, or maybe soft goat's cheese. Your lunch sounds very yummy!

  14. This looks healthy and yummy! The only problem here, blue cheese is very expensive in Asian countries.

    I also have to say that your recipes is so worthy for a magazine feature. I hope you'll get featured someday.
