The leek tart is a nice way to accommodate this tasty vegetable.
If you've ever wondered what to do with leeks besides putting them in a soup or stew, this recipe is for you.
I got the idea to share this recipe with you by watching a famous cooking show. So I had to reproduce it and offer the recipe to you.
How to make this tart delicious?
You are going to make a crumble with grated pecorino romano and thyme. This way you will have a tasty and crumbly pie crust.
To make the leeks pleasant to eat while giving them a slightly different taste, you will burn them in your oven or better on a barbecue.
And to bring a little more delicacy, I propose you to make a velouté with the green parts of the leeks.
Can I bring other fancy ideas?
Of course, don't forget that this is your recipe from the moment you make it.
And to give you ideas, you can associate it with it:
- white pudding on a crumbled base,
- a few thin slices of salmon,
- leftover roast chicken,
- a little green apple,
- feta cheese cubes,
- some pieces of roasted hazelnuts
You see the range of possibilities that this vegetable offers you is immense? Even the black or white truffle goes well with it.
How to add a more herbaceous taste?
The leek goes very well with the Livèche (Levisticum officinale) or Ache de montagnes. But coriander, basil, chives, thyme or rosemary will also form a perfect match.
The leek is powerful in aroma but it has the advantage of matching easily with herbs, even some spices. I therefore advise you to try it and especially to tell me if you find a crazy agreement!
And when should I serve it?
Then you can serve this pie as a main course. It is a complete dish as is if you are on a flexitarian or vegetarian diet. Of course you can also serve it as an accompaniment to your meat.
But you can imagine it as a starter. And even for a festive starter by serving it with pan-fried scallops or oysters.
