Since I’ve started growing some of my own veg, one of the challenges I’ve faced has been to do justice to the crop during the cooking process. I always try my hardest to turn my veg into something special and with my last two leeks I decided to push the boat out!
Planning to take something special to our trip to the woods on sunday I decided to make leek and goats cheese tarts.
Here is the story of the last two leeks:
The last two leeks of the six that made it.
They looked taster than I thought once i’d pulled them up.
Chopping up the leeks.
Gently sauteed with lots of butter.
Shortcrust pastry cases ready for blind baking.
Tart cases filled with sauteed leeks.
A crumble of goats cheese.
The tarts fresh out of the oven. The egg + cream filling rose nicely!
Fire pit + old wine rack makes a very good tart warming device!
The finished article, leek and goats cheese tart.
A happy customer!
