Leek and Feta Tart
Who likes a good tart? As far as I know…EVERYONE.
Went to the Masterton Farmers Market today. German dude there does the BEST bread around(and its really close to where I live, so score!). And then I saw it. Castlepoint Feta.
For those who know me, they know I got married out by the beach there. Rugged coast, etc etc. Plus my wife LOVES feta. And I knew I had some leeks in the fridge, and some shortcrust in freezer.
So aways I went. Sliced up some leeks, whilst my pastry was blind baking.
Then I removed the gold from the fridge. Terrific crumbly firm feta. OM nom.
Then I beat the bejesus outta the eggs, and set up my tart, put the sweated leeks and Feta in the blind baked pastry.
Then Its just a matter of adding the custard, and baking at 180 for about 20 minutes until its set.
Yeah, I was a bit ambitious with not trimming the pastry. (Oven is a bit keen sometimes.) But this went down a treat. Leeks were lovely and soft, and the feta gave it a great salty tang.
I give this 4 stars . Next time I’ll be more careful with the pastry. Great for this miserable winters day though.
