St Patrick's Day Tarts
Happy St. Paddy's Day to you all!
With our unseasonally warm weather here for March, I skipped the heavy soups and stews and root vegetable mash this year, for some puff pastry tarts with traditional Irish combinations. The tart above is inspired by colcannon. The tart features a base of braised and chopped kale, mixed with chopped leeks and topped with very thinly sliced baby potatoes (lightly sauteed in butter), and topped with crumbled goat cheese.
This tart has a base of sauteed leeks with "bacon" (Morningstar Bacon Strips) and Cotswold cheese.
Based on Egg & Bacon Pie, I added sauted leeks to this delicious tart (too bad the yolk broke).
And finally, in place of soup, I made this Potato & Leek tart.
They were all really good! And so easy to make.
