Leek-Tart with Ham and Goat Cheese

After another longish silence (still too much work), now for a light spring recipe. Alright, the weather here in Paris is not very spring-like, I admit. But I’m really looking forward to the sunnier days (I mean, they have to show up one day, don’t they?) so when I cook, I prefer to prepare some nice ‘n’ light meals. My as-if-attitude, right?

Today, it’s an easy tart recipe, a must for all those who love leek and ham and goat cheese.

What you need: 
  • 4 rods of leek 
  • Some butter 
  • 4 slices of smoked ham 
  • Some fresh goat cheese 
  • Some ripe goat cheese 
  • 6 eggs 
  • 200 ml of cream 
  • Salt, pepper, ground nutmeg 
  • 1 puff pastry (ready-to-use, unless you want to prepare a fresh one, but be warned: that’s a mighty complicated task) 
How to proceed: 
  • Cut the smoked ham. 
  • Cut the leek. 
  • Heat some butter in a frying pan, then stir-fry the leek. 
  • Preheat your oven, 200°C. 
  • Precook the puff pastry for 10 minutes (prick the bottom with a fork to avoid that the puff pastry swells in inappropriate places). 
  • After the 10 minutes, cover the bottom of the puff pastry with the leek. 
  • Add the ham. 
  • Mix the eggs and the cream; add salt, pepper and some ground nutmeg. 
  • Pour the mixture over the ham. 
  • Finish with the two types of goat cheese (and be generous for Heaven's sake! lol).
  • . Put in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. 
You can serve this tart with some green salad or mixed salad (and don’t you dare serve your salad with a yucky ready-to-use industrial salad dressing, not after I gave you the recipe for the real, self-made sauce vinaigrette!). 
Enjoy this meat, it’s healthy, light and tasty.
