Seasonal local food recipes No.212 – Leek tianPosted on January 18th, 2014 1 comment
This is the one vegetarian recipe that our student son requests when he’s home! It’s adapted from a favourite Sainsbury’s cook book by Rosamond Richardson.
Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutes
450g leeks, washed and cut into slices
100g rice, washed and cooked
1 tbsp chopped parsley
100g Cheddar cheese, grated
2 eggs, beaten
knob of butter
1/2 tsp chilli powder (optional)
2-3 tbsp parmesan, grated
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200 C/gas mark 6. Sweat the leeks in the butter until tender. Mix with the rice, cheddar, chilli powder, parsley and seasoning to taste, followed by the eggs and mix well. Put into a buttered heatproof dish, sprinkle with the parmesan and bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
I usually serve it with jacket potatoes, carrots and peas.Seasonal local food recipes cornish leeks, Rosamond Richardson, seasonal local food recipe, vegetarian gourmet, weekly veg boxes
