Step 1: You will need
- 3 large leeks
- 25 g butter
- 3 tbsp walnuts, roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp cream
- 1/2 tsp sherry vinegar
- salt and pepper
- 1 sheet of ready made puff pastry
- 50 g goat's cheese
- 1 saucepan or frying pan
- 1 sharp knife
- 1 spoon
- 1 wooden spoon
- 1 baking sheet
- 1 sheet of greaseproof paper
- 1 cutting board
Step 2: Preheat the oven
Allow the oven to heat up to 220ºC.
Step 3: Prepare the leeks
Slice leeks into 1cm pieces. Melt the butter in the saucepan. Add the leeks and fry gently for about 7 minutes, until they are soft.
Step 4: Add other ingredients
Add the walnuts and toss together with the leeks. Add the cream and sherry vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Reduce liquid then take off heat
Cook the leeks until they are fairly dry then take the pan off the heat.
Meanwhile, cut the puff pastry into 4 rectangles and place them on the baking sheet - lined with greaseproof paper.
Step 6: Bring it all together
Spoon the leek mixture into the centre of each pastry rectangle. Leave a border around the edge so the filling doesn't spill over during cooking. Top each tart with the goats cheese.
Step 7: Bake in the oven
Bake them in the oven until the pastry is cooked. They will take around 5 to 7 minutes. When the tart is finished serve immediately with a crisp salad.
