Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup (I stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes, chilled in the freezer for 15 minutes
  • 10 Tbsp. Ice water
  • FILLING
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large leek, white and pale green parts only, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
  • 1 large Yukon gold potato, thinly sliced (I used a mandolin)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Himalayan salt and freshly ground GF black pepper to taste
  • 1 small egg, whisked
  • Instructions

  • In a food processor, pulse the flour, tapioca starch and salt until mixed. Add the cubed butter, and pulse 8 times. The butter should still be the size of peas in the mixture.
  • Add the ice water, a tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition, until the dough just begins to stick together
  • Turn out the dough onto a work surface. Using your hands form the dough into a rectangle and wrap with plastic. Do not over knead the dough, only just enough to form the rectangle. Refrigerate for 1 hour
  • While the dough is chilling, sauté leeks in olive oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, set aside to cool
  • To assemble, roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to approximately 5 x 10-inch rectangle. Scatter half the leeks over the dough, then potatoes, then feta cheese and finish with remaining leeks. Fold edges of dough over the filling, tucking and overlapping slightly as needed. Brush top of the dough with egg
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 400 F for 35 - 40 minutes, until the crust is nicely browned. Cool for 15 minutes then serve.
