Ingredients

  • 3 leeks, most of the tough green top removed and the remaining part cut into quarters
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2-3 red endives, leaves separated
  • 100g halved walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 eating apples, e.g. Braeburn, cut into thin slices
  • 300g goats cheese log, crumbled 
  • 100g pomegranate seeds

For the Dressing:

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • 1 dessert spoon cider vinegar
  • 3 dessert spoons extra virgin rape seed oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.  Place the leeks onto a baking tray and drizzle with the oil.  Season with salt and pepper, cover with foil and place into the hot oven for 25-30 minutes.
  2. While your leeks are cooking, you can prepare the rest of your ingredients as instructed above and make your dressing.  Place the Dijon mustard in a small jar along with the honey, vinegar and the oil.  Add a little salt and pepper, place the lid on top and shake hard until the dressing is combined.
  3. Once the leeks are cooked, remove them from the oven and cut into quarters, lengthways.  Mix the leeks and endive leaves with the walnuts, sliced apples and pomegranate seeds.  Dress lightly with half of the dressing and pile onto a big platter.  Top with crumbled goats cheese and finish with the remaining dressing.

Sophie Wright, one of the youngest stars of British cuisine creates a range of classic British dishes with a modern twist.  The chef, author of ‘Home at 7, Dinner at 8’ has used her creative flair to develop six new contemporary recipes, which include weekday wonders and satisfying suppers.

 

Tangy Chicken and Mango Fajitas



Why not join the fajita craze with taste developer Andrea Lembke, who’s serving up her favourite dish with a twist this summer with her favourite recipe for Tangy Chicken and Mango fajitas

Leek, Parsnip and Chestnut Soup



I’m a real soup lover and none are complete without the addition of leeks. However, rather than just using leeks as a background flavour, I really want to bring them to life, and pair them with ingredients they really love.  

Leek, Stewed Venison and Wild Mushroom Pies



A proper pie that has a crispy, pastry top. Yum!  Give this rich, full bodied pie a go, I can promise you that the combination of delicious British leeks, with venison and wild mushrooms are a match made in heaven.

 

Leek, White Bean and Smoked Haddock Stew



This hearty stew could just as easily be classed as a chunky soup.  Leeks and smoked haddock are the perfect bedfellows. It’s really easy to prepare and uses very few ingredients.
