Many people think quiches are just a summer picnic dish, but I love them served warm in the autumn and winter too. This quiche is phenomenal and it’s the reason …
This may look like you’ve slaved over this dish for hours but it is in fact such an incredibly simple tart to make. By placing butter and sugar under the leeks in the pan I’ve eliminated the need for pre-frying, so it can all be done in the oven. The fresh lemon thyme really brings out the flavour of the leeks, but if you can’t find any, then regular thyme also works well. So simple yet it looks so stunning.
A proper pie that has a crispy, pastry top. Yum! Give this rich, full bodied pie a go, I can promise you that the combination of delicious British leeks, with venison and wild mushrooms are a match made in heaven. Serve with lashing of creamy mash potatoes, gravy and a glass of red. Go on, treat yourselves. Top tip, if you’re having a little soiree, why not make these “mini” so everyone gets their own delicious personal portion.
This hearty stew could just as easily be classed as a chunky soup. Leeks and smoked haddock are the perfect bedfellows; however you could also try this dish with some lightly smoked mackerel, kippers or even smoked chicken or ham. It’s really easy to prepare and uses very few ingredients.
I’m a real soup lover and none are complete without the addition of leeks. However, rather than just using leeks as a background flavour, I really want to bring it to life, and pair it with ingredients it really loves. Parsnips have a natural sweetness that work perfectly with the mellow flavour of leeks and chestnuts add a creaminess that nothing else will. This is the perfect winter soup that will keep you feeling warm and full all through the day.
This makes the perfect side dish to accompany any Sunday roast. British leeks work really well with a delicious creamy, cheesy sauce and the crumble topping. Made with a combination of oats and nuts this is something that will definitely wow your dinner guests.
Crunchy and tasty leek, potato and cheese croquettes
A Christmas side dish
A warm filo pastry that can be made either in starter or main course size, coupled with a creamy leek and Caerphilly filling and tiny jewels of ruby red cranberries. Ideal party food.
A great alternative to leek and potato, this is a delicious thick soup with a real punch of Stilton. A great way to beat the winter blues. Just serve simply with fresh, granary bread.
