1.Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add leek, stalks and garlic and sauté until tender (2-3 minutes). Add leaves, stir until wilted, then stir in rind and herbs; season to taste and set aside.
2.Line a 23cm-diameter tart tin with pastry then trim edges, leaving a 1cm overhang. Whisk eggs in a bowl; stir in Comté and silverbeet mixture, spread in pastry case and arrange leeks on top. Crimp edges then bake until golden and set (20 minutes). Serve hot or at room temperature.
