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.
