Leek, almond & bruised tomato galette. #Delicious.

By  |  0 Comments

A tomato tart that is a little different: it has almonds and leeks!
You can make the spelt pastry or just cheat and buy the pastry sheets.
Either way it’s great. Adulterated from Delicious magazine.

You need for 6 fashionistas or 32 models:

5 over-ripe or bruised truss or roma tomatoes, chopped
3 leeks, thinly sliced
1/2 bunch hard herbs, such as thyme or rosemary
1/3 cup (80ml) extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch micro basil, leaves picked
1/3 cup (55g) roasted almonds, chopped
2/3 cup (50g) finely grated parmesan, plus extra to serve
2 tbs baby capers in vinegar, drained
1 egg, lightly beaten
Sliced mixed heirloom tomatoes and vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, to serve
Spelt pastry
22/3 cups (400g) white spelt flour
200g cold unsalted butter, chopped
1/4 cup (60ml) apple cider vinegar

• Pour a wine or three.
• For the pastry, place flour and 1 tsp salt flakes in a bowl.
• Add butter and toss to coat. Like a Burberry coat.

• In 3 batches, add to flour mixture, stirring to combine.

• Preheat oven to 200°C.
• Line a baking tray with foil and place bruised tomato, leek and hard herbs on top.
• Drizzle with oil and season.

• Meanwhile, roughly chop half the basil leaves and place in a bowl with almonds, parmesan and capers.

• Brush with egg and cook for 50 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden. Cool slightly.

• Drizzle with reserved roasting juices and serve.
