Leek and Ricotta Tartes

Today was a beautiful sunny day and the first time that I went to work by bike. The weather is quite mild these days, so we can sit on the balcony in the evening and have some good food. I was seeing this receipe in a magazine the other day and I thought this sounds like good stuff to have on a spring evening with a little glas of white wine.

The tartes are easy to prepare and you can always vary the receipe in case you do not have all the ingredients at home.

I think the combination of ricotta and parmesan cheese is great and give the tartes a nice and creamy base. The tartes are definitely not a light snack but taste fantastic and go well with a green salad.

What you need:
500 g Ricotta cheese
A handful of grated Parmesan cheese
2 Eggs
500g Puff paste
Leek, finely sliced
50g melted butter
Fresh thyme
Pepper and salt

Steps:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C
  • In a bowl, combine ricotta, parmesan and eggs and stir well
  • Roll out puff paste squares, rectangles or circles on a baking tray
  • Spread the ricotta cream on the pastry and add sliced leek on top
  • Coat the tartes with melted butter and season with tyhme, pepper and salt
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes

      We LOVE cheese, and leeks are becoming a new fav. We loves the flavor (and smell) they give off when cooking/eating them!! (I currently have them cooking in the crock pot with chicken right now.) I am going to give this recipe a go this summer. It seems like a simple/quick lunch/dinner to make. Paired with a salad this will be perfect!!
