READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

From www.bhg.com. Leek and herbes de Provence-what a combo! A good and reliable herbes de Provence recipe is #18553. Update 07-25-06: after testing this again, I reduced the amount of mustard from one tablespoon to a half tablespoon.

A very good recipe which yields an attractive looking tart. Mine was was a bit more rustic looking than kiwidutch's. But if like me, you're not brilliant at rolling out neat circles of pasty, rustic is good! I only had 3 leeks, so used both the white and green parts to make up the 3 cups specified. We weren't too sure about the mustard as we both felt it 'fought' the leeks. This recipe is definately worth making again, but I will leave the mustard next time.
