Creamy Potato Leek Tart

I am usually not that big of a fan of quiches and tarts, but when I brought two beautiful and thick stalks leek home from grocery shopping, I wanted to make something else but soup. Something “to grab”.

I love leek in a soup or just gratinated on flatbread. But today I wanted creamy leek. So I dusted my tart pan and made this delicious tart.

Because this tart is quite fat, it is very filling and serves, depending on appetite, 2 or even 4 if you serve it with a salad.

Creamy Potato Leek Tart
Gang/Type: Main Dish
Ergibt/Yield: 2 - 4 Servings
  1. Preheat the oven to 190° C (380° F). Cut the puff pastry to fit in your pan and place it in the pan. Prick the bottom with a fork several times.

  2. Finely slice the leek, peel the potatoes and finely slice (with a mandoline). Heat the oil in a pan and sauté potatoes and leek in it for about 5 minutes.

  3. Blend water, cashews, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper in a high-speed blender for about 1 minute until creamy. Pour over the veggies and bring to boil.

  4. When the cream has thickened, pour the veggie mix in the tart pan, level and bake for about 30 minutes until golden-brown.

  5. Remove from the pan, cut into pieces and serve with a salad and a glass of white wine.
If you don't have a high-speed blender, let the cashews soak in water or use cashew butter. A tart pan with removable bottom makes it super-easy to remove.

    Do you soak the cashews first? Or blend just as they are- I don’t see on the recipe that you soaked them first? Thanks! I want to make this!

      Hey Rhona,
      it really depends on your blender. You won’t have to soak them if you have a high-speed blender. I’d recommend you soak them with a regular blender to avoid tiny bits in your tarte.

    This was fantastic! I had freshly harvested leeks and potatoes from my garden and was looking to make something other than the standard leek and potato soup. This will be a regular dinner for us from now on. The taste and texture are perfect! I think even those who eat dairy would love it as well.
