"Tender Leeks with a garlic bread crust"

Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 35 minutes

Why I Love This Recipe

These sweet and tender leeks are so easy to make and seriously delicious – especially with a crunchy garlic and parsley sourdough crumb to finish.


Ingredients You'll Need

3 leeks, trimmed, sliced in half length and crossways
30 grams butter

Sourdough crumb:
2 slices sourdough, crust removed
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon olive oil


Directions

Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
Place the leeks cut side up in a large ovenproof pan. Add the butter and enough water to just cover the leeks. Simmer gently until the leeks are tender, roughly 15 minutes. Place the leeks in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden.
Crumb: Toast the sourdough then blitz into a fine crumb. Place in a bowl and mix through the garlic, parsley, olive oil and sea salt.
Scatter the breadcrumb mixture over the leeks and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
