Leek And Sorrel Tarts

Here are all the heart and circulation benefits of leeks with the beta carotene and iron from the sorrel; but keep off the sorrel if you have gout or kidney stones as it contains a lot of oxalic acid that can aggravate these conditions, use spinach instead.

Serves 4
1 packet short-crust pastry
350g/12oz young leeks, washed and finely chopped
6 sorrel leaves (spinach will do, but it is really worth growing your own sorrel, even in a largish pot.)
Organic rape seed oil
1 pinch quatre épices (four spice) powder
White sauce

Heat the oven to 200C/400F/ gas 7

Bake the pastry blind in four small, non stick tart dishes for 10 mins. (use baking beads or dried chick peas to line the pastry base) Leave to cool slightly.

While you’re doing this, gently sauté the leeks in the oil and season with pepper. Stir in the sorrel leaves and spice powder.

Put the leeks and sorrel into the pastry tarts.

Pour over the white sauce

Put back in the oven for 15 mins
