Ingredients

Shortcrust pastry

  • 180 g flour any kind
  • 75 g butter softened
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 5 cl tepid water

Filling

  • 500 g leeks
  • 3 or 4 big button mushrooms
  • 150 g smoked bacon bits
  • 15 cl sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • few parsley sprigs
  • 8 hazelnuts
  • A handful of gouda or comté chips
  • nutmeg
  • salt
  • pepper
  • sweet chili pepper

Instructions

Dough preparation

  • Mix the flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the soft butter previously diced. Mix for a few minutes with your fingertips until you get a semolina-like texture.
  • Add the water all at once to bind the dough and form a ball. Add a small amount of water if necessary, or conversely a little flour.
  • Let the dough rest while you prepare the filling.

Filling preparation

  • Wash the leeks. Cut the whites, and half them lengthwise. Then slice into thin slices. Also slice the greens into thin strips.
  • Steam the leeks for 20 minutes.
  • Fry the bacon bits in a frying pan.
  • Cut the mushrooms into slices and fry them for a few minutes in olive oil.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the cream.
  • Mix in the cream. Add nutmeg, chilli pepper, pepper and a little salt.
  • Incorporate the bacon bits and chopped parsley leaves.
  • Place your pastry in a pie dish. Pour the cooked leeks and the mushrooms.
  • Pour over the egg/cream/ bacon mixture.
  • Coarsely crush the hazelnuts. Sprinkle the top of the tart with the hazelnut chips and cheese shavings.
  • Bake the tart for 30 minutes at 180°C.

Notes

For a vegetarian version: simply remove the bacon.
For a vegan version: use a pie dough made with oil, replace the eggs and fresh cream by oat cream which you incorporate a little rice flour in.
