Our organic box brought us leeks week after week so we found and adapted this recipe as a nice change from leek soup – although not really Eat To Live friendly, so you can only have a tiny piece, but our kids enjoyed it…
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 4 large leeks – sliced
- 1 egg – beaten
- 1/2 cup grated Kefalotyri or any other kind of hard cheese like Parmesan
- 1 refrigerated whole wheat pie crust – this was our nod to the diet…
Saute leeks in butter for approximately 15-20 minutes or until soft and translucent. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once leek mixture is cool, add egg and hard grated cheese. Mix to combine. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread leek mixture into tart pan. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown. Allow to cool prior to serving.
