Happy St David’s Day! I’ve got my first bunch of daffodils of the year! It’s good to be thinking about Spring menus. I love using leeks, one of my favourite recipes is the Leek and Bean no Bake. It works as a quick supper with pasta, or enclosed in pastry as a pie, or strudel for a dinner party.
How to prepare a leek for cooking
Place leek on chopping board and slice down the length, but leave the root intact. The root holds everything together.
Hold the leek under running water and wash the soil and grit out of all the layers.
Shake off excess water, and place on a cleaning chopping board to slice.
Place in a pan and start cooking – the water will help stem the leek before you add oil for cooking.
