Creamy Leek, Broccoli & Cauliflower Pie

Leek is definitely one of my favourite veggies to cook in the winter!
It is so heartwarming in the cold winter days!
I love it in tarts and pies with lots of cream!:-) Would love to cook a good leek soup as well.

Today’s recipe is simple, yummy and creamy!
The ingredients are broccoli, cauliflower and leek, of course.
What I did differently this time, though, is that I added a few cherry tomatoes for some juiciness!
I used ready to roll puff pastry which I love! All you have to do is just to roll it, instead of spending time making your owl puff pastry! Not that I disapprove that! It is quite time consuming, though and if you’re a busy mum, I’m sure your time is precious!:-)

So here’s a list of the ingredients for this creamy winter pie!

Ingredients:

  • 500g ready to roll puff pastry, 17.6oz
  • 2 large leek (around 300g), sliced
  • 100g broccoli florets, 3.5oz
  • 100g cauliflower florets, 3.5oz
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes
  • 200ml double cream, 2/3 of a cup
  • 1egg yolk
  • salt

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the one to 200°C/392°F.
  2. Heat a frying pan with olive oil and add the leek.
  3. Cook for a couple of minutes and add the broccoli and cauliflower florets.
  4. After about 5 minutes add the cherry tomatoes. I used them whole as I love their juiciness, but if you prefer you can cut them in half.
  5. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.
  6. Leave for 2 – 3 minutes and remove from the hob.
  7. Meanwhile, unroll the pastry.
  8. Divide it in two equal parts – one for the bottom and the other one for the top of the pie.
  9. Spray a loose base tart tin with some oil.
  10. Layer the first part of the pastry.
  11. Add the veggie mixture.
  12. Cover the pie.
  13. Brush the egg yolk and bake in the oven for about 30 – 40 minutes until nice and golden.
Enjoy!
