Leek & Chèvre Tartelettes


So, this dinner started with me wanting to make a “light” dinner because it was so hot outside, it ended being so good that it wasn’t enough! So double the portions if your hungry… or greedy… whichever!

 Ingredients for 2 plates

For the tartelettes:
3 egg yolks
1 egg
1 leek
4-5 slices of chèvre
olive & lemon oil (or olive oil and some lemon juice)
salt & pepper

For the mozzarella & pomodori:
2 tomatoes
1 mozzarella ball
some pesto
good virgin olive oil
fleur de sel

20 minutes preparation

Preheat the oven to 180º.

So, you mix the flour, water, lemon olive oil and a pinch of salt so you get a nice little dough. Sorry, I don’t have the exact proportions for the dough, I’ll figure out how much I used. But in the meantime, just use the proportions as you would for a pizza dough.

The secret ingredient here is the lemon olive oil! It gives a delicious taste!

If you have a mold as mine on the picture you can use it too fit the size. Later you’ll use it to assemble the egg-mix so you’ll get a pretty and high tartelette.

Put it in the heated oven for 5-10 minutes until their getting golden.

While it’s in the oven, start with the delicious-and-very-pretty-tomato-mozzarella-side-dish.

Cut the tomatoes in thin slices, and then cut those slices in two. Cut the mozzarella in thin slices while eating half of it … oh no, that’s just one of my bad habits…

Place them in a star shape on a plate by overlapping them.

Then add tiny pieces of pesto all around on it. You don’t need mush because the taste should be strong and you want it to be pretty … *or I want it to be pretty at least*

Then pour some good olive oil on it and add some salt.

Top it with some basil leafs if you have it for decoration and taste.

Now mix all the eggs. Then slice up the leek and add it. Add the chèvre as well.

Then scramble the mix in a hot pan as you would for scrambled eggs. When it’s ready, put it on top of the pai crust while using the same mold used earlier to shape it.

For the finish touch, add some grated parmesan on the tartelettes!

Assemble it on a plate, and add some slices of good ham if you have some!

And booh yah! Enjoy!
