Baby leek and lemon tart


This tart would work equally well topped with grilled asparagus at this time of year.

You'll need

1 bunch baby leeks, trimmed, rinsed in cold water to remove dirt 2 tbsp olive oil 15 filo pastry sheets 100 gm butter, melted 600 gm sour cream 6 eggs 2 garlic cloves, finely grated on a microplane 1 tbsp thyme leaves Finely grated rind of 2 lemons and juice of 1 lemon 1 tbsp plain flour To serve: green leaf salad

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Preheat a char-grill pan over high heat, drizzle leeks with olive oil, season to taste and grill, turning occasionally, until golden and tender (1-2 minutes), then set aside.
  • 02
  • Lay one filo sheet in a 20cm x 28cm loose-based tart tin, allowing excess to overhang (cover remaining filo with a damp tea towel). Brush with butter, then top with another filo sheet. Repeat with remaining butter and filo, finishing with a filo sheet.
  • 03
  • Whisk remaining ingredients in a bowl, season to taste and pour into pastry-lined tin. Scatter leeks over and bake until golden and cooked through (15-20 minutes; cover edges loosely with foil if browning too quickly). Set aside to set slightly (5 minutes) and serve warm with green leaf salad.
