"In my opinion, leeks are a vegetable that don’t get enough attention. That’s why I wanted to make them the star of the show in this tart. The blanching step is really important, because with such a short baking time, the leeks wouldn’t be able to get tender all the way through, so definitely do not skip it! The Pecorino can be replaced with Gruyère cheese for a more intense and savory flavor."

    Wash the leeks and halve them widthwise so they are approximately the length of your baking tray. Blanch leeks in a pot of boiling salted water for approx. 4 – 5 min. Rinse in cold water and pat dry with kitchen towels, then slice in half lengthwise to expose the inside of the leeks.

  • Step 3/3

    Place the puff pastry into the baking sheet so the entire bottom is covered and you get a small crust around the edges. Pour in the crème fraîche mixture and spread evenly over the base. Then press the halved leeks into the mixture with the cut-side facing up. Bake for approx. 30 min. at 200°C/400°F until golden-brown. Slice and enjoy warm or room temperature!
