Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


Going on with the Wales' theme... Children seem to like this more than steamed leeks. It could not be simpler to make:

You need:
- a couple of leeks per person
- salt
- olive oil

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees. Put the leeks in a roasting tray. Add the salt and drizzle with olive oil. Let them roast for 35 minutes, until they are golden.

We made them with 'romesco' sauce (recipe to come later when we have time to write it)

The main thing for the children to learn with this is how to clean the leeks. Unless you cut them lengthwise and rinse them well under the tap, you may get some sand which is a pretty disagreeable feeling when they are eating them.
