2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

1 puff pastry, thawed

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

6-8 organic leeks, sliced white and green parts

1 organic golden potato, unpeeled and thinly sliced

3-4 cups organic greens, roughly chopped(chard, spinach, kale or collards or a mix)

Salt and pepper to taste

Good splash of sherry

3/4 cup gouda or edam cheese, shredded

5 ounce goat cheese

Heat olive oil to medium hot in a skillet

Add the leeks, potato slices and spices

In the meantime, roll out the puff pastry on wax paper

Spread the bottom of a pie plate or soufflé pan with half of the butter

Lay the rolled out pastry in the plate leaving excess pastry hanging over the pan sides
