Tell me if it happens to you? You go shopping and in the middle of the store, looking at some vegetables, you think about a recipe for them. This is what started to happens to me a few months back. Maybe because I am not cooking very often or something different or maybe there is other explanation that I can’t find. All I know is I see recipes in my head in the middle of the shop when I don’t even think about cooking.
So buying some cheese, I saw puff pastry and I wanted to make something out. I thought about a spinach tart, but because I couldn’t find any spinach I hat to improvise. So I saw leeks and zucchini and I said to myself: “Go for it”. You can’t go wrong with them. So here is my recipe for a different tart.
- 1 roll of puff pastry (375g)
- 1 zucchini
- 1 leek
- 1 egg
- 100 ml milk
- 150g salty sheep cheese
- 150g branza de burduf (Romanian sheep cheese placed in the sheep stomach or skin)
- sweet chili powder
Preheat oven to 220°C/ (200°C for fan assisted ovens). Place a baking sheet in the tray. Put the puff pastry on top of the baking sheet.
On the puff pastry add a layer of zucchini slices. On top of them add the sheep cheese (branza de burduf) which will melt on everything. Next layer will be the salty sheep cheese and then the thin slices of leeks.
Baked for 10 minutes and then add a mixture of egg, milk, pepper and chili powder. Do it with a spoon so you spread it everywhere.
Baked for another 10 – 15 minutes. Always check not to burn it.
Serve it hot or cold. Goes great as an appetizer or with some meat near. Enjoy!
