I made a tart!

I made a tart out of spring vegetables! Wanna see how?

1 leek
10 asparagus
3 egg
1/2 c cream
Salt, pepper, nutmeg
1 pie crust

First I chopped up the vegetables and sauteed them in butter:

Then I patched together a tart crust from some dough bits left over from last week's pie. I baked it 20 minutes at 375. Then I painted it with the yolk of one of my eggs and returned it to the oven to set. This seals the crust in case of small holes or fissures and also keeps it from getting soggy.

Then I sprinkled in my veggies:

And I poured in a custard made from the rest of my eggs, the cream, and seasonings:

Then I baked at 400 for 20 minutes or so until the egg was just set. Easy and fun!
