  • 8 small leeks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cloves of garlic (finely sliced)
  • 200ml vegetable stock
  • 3 tbspn oil
  • 1 small red onion
  • 20g sultanas
  • 1 tbspn cider vinegar
  • 2 tspn caster sugar
  • 2 tbspn oil

method:

Cut the leeks widthways into 2 segments, each about 10 cm long and wash well. Lay all of the leeks on the bottom of a large shallow pan and add the bay leaves, garlic, stock, oil and about 250ml of water, so that the leeks are half covered in liquid. Add 3/4 tspn of salt and some black pepper, place on a medium heat and simmer gently for about 30mins or until a knife can be inserted into the leeks without any resistance. Turn the leeks over once or twice during cooking so that are cooked evenly.

Mix together the onion, sultanas, vinegar, sugar and 1/4 tspn salt and some black pepper. Pour the mixture over the leeks and serve.
