In the north, leek pie is a must. I had some gluten-free puff pastry dough laying around, and instead of making one, I decided to twist things around a little, see what I come up with. These are deliciously crunchy and the leeks melt in your mouth. Perfect as an appetiser, or to eat with a salad for a light lunch 🙂

Ingredients: (for 4 triangles)

  • 1 roll of gluten-free puff pastry
  • 2 leek whites
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 egg (for the crust)
  • 2 tbsp of perfumed oil (pepper, tomato, oregano…)
  • salt and pepper

Preparation: 15 minutes

Baking: 25 minutes – 200°C

Directions:

  1. Chop the leeks thinly along with the onion and the garlic.
  2. Heat up a pan and throw in the veggies with the oil. Let it sweat for 10 minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool down.
  4. Unroll the puff pastry and slice it in quarters.
  5. Add a spoonful of leeks to fill half the quarter and leaving a 1 cm thick border.
  6. Fold the other half of the quarter on top and press the edges lightly to close it up.
  7. Repeat the operation with every quarter.
  8. Heat up your oven to 200°C.
  9. Slice lightly the top of the quarters. Whisk the egg and use a brush to put some on each triangle. As it bakes, the dough will take a lovely golden colour.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve immediately with some salad or the side of your choice.

Last tip: you can freeze the triangles and eat them later once they’re baked. When you do, just put them back in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.

The bottle: serve with a crisp aromatic white wine, a dry Riesling for example.
