You'll need

75 gm butter, diced 200 gm leeks, (about 2 small; white part only), thinly sliced 150 gm Swiss chard, leaves and stalks sliced 1 tbsp thyme 2 small eggs 150 gm sour cream 50 gm feta, crumbled 25 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated 15 gm plain flour   Sour cream pastry 250 gm (1 1/3 cups) plain flour 150 gm chilled butter, diced 1 egg, lightly beaten 125 gm sour cream

Method

  • 01
  • For pastry, process flour and butter in a food processor until combined, then add egg, sour cream and a pinch of salt and process until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate to rest (1 hour). Press the dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper to form a rectangle about 30cm x 40cm and 3mm thick. Refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 160C. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add leek, chard stems and thyme and sauté until tender (10-12 minutes). Stir in chard leaves, cook until wilted (2-3 minutes), then set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and sour cream until just combined, then stir in feta, Gruyère and flour until combined and season to taste. Stir in chard mixture and spoon onto pastry, leaving a 5mm border.
  • 04
  • Bake tart until cooked through and caramelised on top (35-40 minutes) and serve warm.
