Posts Tagged ‘leek recipe’

I opened my backdoor this morning to find great piles of parsnips and leeks deposited on the step – which is always a sign that someone has been down to the allotment and harvested the latest that the season has to offer! 

Keen to devour the harvest fresh from the plot I set about making this very easy vegetable bake for the family.  Vegetables in season are cheaper to buy, taste so much better and have travelled far fewer miles to reach your local supermarket. 

Better still if you grow your own you can enjoy the food delights of every season, with the fabulous satisfaction of having nurtured them from seed.  So for gardening inspiration visit www.recycleworks.co.uk.

Ingredients 

  • 500g potatoes thinly sliced
  • 500g parsnips thinly sliced
  • 1 kg carrots thinly sliced
  • 1kg leeks thinly sliced
  • 700 ml cream
  • 4 tbsp mustard
  • 4 tbsp mixed herbs
  • Grated parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Wash all the vegetables, peel & slice thinly

Boil the potatoes, parsnips and carrots for 3 minutes

Saute the leeks for a few minutes in a small amount of butter

Mix the cream, mustard and herbs together 

Put the lightly cooked vegetables to a baking dish

Pour over the cream and mix well with the vegetables

Top with breadcrumbs and grated parmesan cheese

Bake for 45 min to an hour until gently browned on the top.  Yum!

For everything you need to grow your own!
