This seemed good until I read the recipe a bit closer and I was dubious that it would work.
After boiling some leeks until they are soft and patting them dry, you dip them in egg and breadcrumbs and fry.
You also make a pickled red pepper topping – and a yoghurt, sour cream sauce. You then plate the fried leeks with some sauce and peppers – and a few chopped spring onions.
Unfortunately leeks aren’t good carriers of egg – and in the end the breadcrumbs and eggs just ended up being separate entities in the pan.
It still tasted good – very good in fact – it just didn’t look great. I don’t think I’d make them again just because I like my food to look good.
I still haven’t made an Ottolenghi dish I haven’t enjoyed – I just didn’t like the presentation of this one – but that’s probably just my fault.
