Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

French can be paired with Bordeaux, Champagne, and White Burgundy. French wine is just as diverse as French food, but you rarely go wrong with champagne. If your meal calls for a white wine, you might also try a white burgundy. For a red, try a red bordeaux blend. The Chateau Larroque Bordeaux Superieur with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.

Chateau Larroque Bordeaux Superieur

Dark garnet hue in color. Red fruits, almond and hazelnut, with a faint vanilla aroma. The silky, velvety attack reveals a pleasant, concentrated flavor with good structure. Flavors of dried fruits, and a combination of licorice and toasted notes. Blend: 63% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Instructions

  1. Make crust in a food processor. Place flour and salt in work bowl. Add butter pieces and sour cream. Pulse to combine. With machine running, drizzle in ice water until a ball forms. Flour a work surface and roll out into a 12 inch round. Quickly foldinto quarters and gently lay in an 11 inch shallow, tin fluted tart pan; press into pan. Place in freezer 15 minutes (can be left frozen for up to a month). Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a layer of foil on top of crust and fill with dried beans. Prebake 15 minutes to 18 minutes, until just pale golden. Red
  2. Place leeks and 1/4 cup water in a large skillet. Heat over medium-high heat and cook a few minutes to sweat (not brown them) until water evaporates and leeks are tender. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine milk, cream, eggs and seasoning. Beat with a whisk to combine. Add cheese. Place cooked leeks into prebaked shell and gently pour in custard. Immediately place in oven and bake 20 minutes to 25 minutes until puffed, brown and set. Cool 10 minutes and serve hot, or cool to room temperature.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
