    Posted on January 18th, 2014 Janet 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.

    Serves 4

    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.
