Leek and feta tart

Sharing is caring!

We use deliciously sweet sautéed leeks with tangy feta cheese to create this effortless vegetarian tart recipe. A simple weeknight dinner that tastes so good.

Our easy leek and feta tart is the perfect savoury tart recipe for weeknight dinner.

The leeks are slowly sautéed with garlic, thyme and just a sprinkling of brown sugar to make them sweet and deliciously caramelised.

Then the sweet leeks are scattered over a ready rolled puff pastry sheet along with the feta cheese to create a simple leek and feta tart.

I like to eat this tart alongside a quick couscous salad and a green salad, but the kids prefer it with mashed potatoes and baked beans.

Easy Leek and Feta Tart Ingredients

homemade leek tart with feta cheese made using puff pastry
  • 2 trimmed leeks – washed and shredded
  • 1 clove of garlic – finely chopped
  • Small handful of fresh picked thyme leaves – or you can use a teaspoonful of dried thyme
  • 1 tsp brown sugar – you could use a drizzle of honey if you preferred
  • 25g butter
  • Sheet of ready rolled puff pastry – I always keep a pack of puff pastry in the fridge, they’re so convenient, brilliant for last minute puff pastry pizzas as a stand by dinner.
  • 3 tbs sun dried tomato paste – you can use pesto if you like
  • 100g feta cheese – cubed
  • 1 egg beaten

How to make caramelised leek and goat cheese tart

  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the garlic, leeks and thyme leaves, gently fry for around 10 minutes until soft. Then add the brown sugar and continue to fry for another 5-10 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 180C.
  • Lay the pastry sheet on a baking tray and gently make an indent all the way around approx 1 inch from the edge.
  • Spread the centre of the pastry with sun dried tomato paste then scatter over the leeks and feta cheese.
  • Brush the edges of the tart with beaten egg.
  • Bake in the oven for around 20 – 25 minutes until the pastry is cooked through and the cheese browning.

Our leek and feta tart recipe is easy to switch up and flavour the way you like it. Feel free to swap, change or add ingredients.

  • Want some meat? Try adding some smoky bacon.
  • Try a creme fraiche or cream cheese base instead of sun dried tomato paste.
  • Switch the feta for nice British regional cheeses like Crumbly Lancashire or Red Leicester.

What to serve with puff pastry savoury tarts

Our leek tart tastes delicious just alongside a simple green salad, but if you need it to stretch to feed more people, or make the meal more substantial then try…

  • serving alongside oven baked potatoes, creamy mashed potatoes or even a side of fries.
  • add a side salad or homemade coleslaw, although the kids do love this tart with baked beans.
  • And if you want to LOVE your leftovers, then our leek tart tastes fab cold next day so slap a slice in your lunchbox.
