  • ¼ leek, sliced finely
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into small pieces

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Brush tart tin with extra virgin olive oil. Layer a sheet of pastry and press into edges. Brush with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Repeat with all 4 layers. Scrunch the sides to create a nice edge to the tart and brush the edge with egg wash. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile heat a frying pan, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sauté the veggies for a few minutes until softened and slightly browned.
  4. Whisk the eggs, milk, thyme, lemon zest and milk together. Season with good grind of fresh black pepper.
  5. Layer half the veggies in the tart, then crumble over half the feta. Pour over the egg mixture. Scatter the remaining veggies, the peas and the rest of the feta. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the filling is set.
  6. Serve hot or cold.
