A rich, luscious but easy way to serve leeks.
A sophisticated but really easy vegetable side dish. If you end up liking it, you’ll have it easily committed to memory in no time flat.
How many this recipe serves depends on how many leeks you have or buy, which will of course depend on how many you are planning on feeding.
This recipe apparently has its origins in 18th century Edinburgh, Scotland — where the unlucky rooster that lost a cock fight would be tossed into a pot and fed up to the spectators
Really tasty mash, worth the little bit extra effort.
This is an all in one dish. You can serve it in a bowl.

A wonderful fall soup.
Smoky bacon is really, really nice with this. You can also use ham.

An inexpensive but great tasting salmon quiche.
This is very tasty with the leeks, but you can use sliced onions instead if you have onions to hand.

A gorgeous, full-flavoured soup.
A good vegetable soup with complexity of flavour.
A rich, yummy side-dish.
