From the veg box......Roasted Baby Leeks

The baby leeks from Dot's veg box were just gorgeous. Produce like this needs such little tweaking meaning less work for me....yippee. So trim then blanch for 2-3 mins in boiling salted water. Put them in a roasting dish, splash of olive oil, a few slices of garlic, salt and pepper. I would have added a little red wine vinegar but I couldn't get the lid off the bottle :o(
Then into the oven (200degrees) for 10 minutes.
I let them cool and just ate them warm on their own, but I think they would be really good with some baked trout.
On a side note, the baking dish was a very kind present from Sheila, who is highly likely to read this. Thank you Sheila!
