1 hr 30 mins


  • 1 9 1/2-inch-square sheet puff pastry (8 ounces), thawed, cold

  • 2 tablespoons gochujang

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons hot water

  • 1 large leek, white and pale green parts only, trimmed, rinsed well, thinly sliced and patted dry

  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and thinly sliced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Lay puff pastry flat on the prepared pan. Prick all over with a fork. Fold the sides over to form a 1/2-inch border. Brush with a little water to seal the edges and crimp gently with a fork. Set aside in the refrigerator.

  3. Mix gochujang, honey and oil in a medium bowl. Add hot water and mix until smooth. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the mixture for drizzling. Add leek, potato, salt and pepper to the bowl and toss to coat. Scatter some leek slices over the pastry, then shingle the potatoes and the remaining leek in a single layer within the borders. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  4. Bake the tart, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through, until the crust is golden brown all over and the potatoes and leeks are tender when pierced with a knife, 50 to 55 minutes.

  5. Let cool for 5 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved 2 tablespoons sauce and sprinkle with chives. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
