Melt the butter and oil in a shallow pan. Add the leeks and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring well. Add 1 tbsp water, cover, reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season and set aside to cool slightly.
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Roll out the pastry to a 20cm circle and put on a baking sheet. Spread with the mustard, leaving a 4cm border.
Mix the crème fraîche, eggs, cheese and leeks. Season and spoon over the mustard base on the pastry. Scatter over the chives. Fold in the edges to form a 2cm crust.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Stand the tart for 5 minutes, then serve with the spinach tossed in balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil.
