So we ran out of food midweek. This only ever happens when we are oncall for work and can’t go out !
Anyway I decided to dig out my copy of Yotam Ottolenghi – Plenty.
This was the first book I scoured for recipes and struggled to eliminated anything I didn’t want to cook. In the end I made half the things in the book – including the Leek Fritter dish. Sadly I forgot to take a photo at the time – hence me making it again.
This isn’t a quick dish – but it is worth the effort. It certainly fills a hole and is very tasty.
All you do is sauté some leeks and shallots and once they have cooled down toss them in a spiced batter and egg white mixture.
Fry them like pancakes and they go all fluffy in less than 5 minutes – mainly due to all the self raising flour and baking powder.
These are really yummy – especially with the yoghurt and sour cream dip which has been blended with garlic, coriander, parsley and lemon juice.
They must be good. My mother in law loved them!
A definite keeper – and you can make these in advance – and take them to work the next day and reheat.
