Speedy savouries

Those speedy savouries, made with the ingredients I found in my fridge, are based on a Cavoletto recipe, but they are rearranged according to some absences: no cream, no taleggio cheese, no time to make the brisée.. but I had some puff pastry!
I used the last leeks I had, but they were really small, so let’s make savouries for two people!

Ingredients for 2 people:
puff pastry, 1 roll
leeks, 3
pecorino cheese, 50gr
cumin, 1 teaspoon
butter, 20 gr
extravirgin olive oil
salt & pepper

Once the puff pastry is defrosted, roll out the dough and cut it in little squares. In the meantime, in a frying pan melt the butter and add the sliced leeks (white and green part), a teaspoon of cumin, salt and pepper and let it stew until they’re soft (not more than 5 minutes).
Put a tablespoon of leeks on every puff pastry square, slice some pecorino cheese over it and some grinded pepper, then some drops of good extra virgin olive oil.
Bake in a preheated oven until they are golden and crisp.
Eat them warm!

  1. saranno anche velocissimi da fare ma credo che sarà ancora più veloce chi li mangerà!!! gnamgnam

  2. già, sono velocissimi (tanto che io li ho lasciati un po’ troppo in forno, si vede dalla forto, eh?).. e velocissimi vanno anche mangiati!!

  3. These sound wonderful! I was wondering, though, if you could suggest a spice or herb that could be substituted for cumin, which my husband and I cannot eat. Thank you; I always enjoy reading your posts and viewing your Instagram gallery.

    1. Hello Marsha! I would use sweet paprika, or coriander, just choose he spice you like the best!
