Herbed Leek Tart Recipe

This savory, non-traditional tart is a favorite among family and friends!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups thinly sliced leeks (about 4 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds or walnuts, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute the leeks, red pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese, mustard and herbs; set aside.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each sheet of pastry into a 12-in. circle. Transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Spoon leek mixture over pastry to within 2 in. of edges. Fold edges of pastry over filling, leaving center uncovered. Brush folded pastry with milk; sprinkle with nuts if desired.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Using parchment paper, slide tarts onto wire racks. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 tarts (8 servings each).
Editor's Note: Look for herbes de Provence in the spice aisle.
