1.Preheat oven to 220°C.
2.Grease a 21cm x 30cm ovenproof dish or shallow loose-based fluted tart tin. Overlap pastry sheets slightly; press to join. Lift pastry into dish, press onto base and sides; trim excess pastry. Prick base all over with a fork; place dish on an oven tray. Line pastry with baking paper; fill with dried beans or rice. Bake 10 minutes. Remove paper and beans; bake a further 10 minutes or until pastry is browned and crisp.
3.Meanwhile, heat a chargrill plate (or grill) to medium-high heat. Trim and wash leeks; pat dry. Brush leeks with oil; cook, turning, for 7 minutes or until tender.
4.Reduce oven to 200°C.
5.Whisk eggs, cream and parmesan in a large bowl; season well. Pour egg mixture into pastry case; top with leeks and half the goat’s cheese.
6.Bake quiche for 30 minutes or until set and golden. Top with remaining goat’s cheese.

Pencil leeks are also called baby or tiny leeks; use thick green onions instead if you can’t find them. Or use 10 trimmed asparagus spears instead. Quiche is best made on the day of serving.
