Number one for winter cooking, leeks add flavour and depth to warming soups and stews. But they can be a brilliant standalone ingredient, too.  
Share recipe


  • 20 baby leeks, trimmed
  • 100g hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp groundnut oil
  • ½ orange, juice and zest
  • ½ lemon, juice and zest
  • 2 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 25g parsley, roughly chopped


Step 1

In a large, wide pan, lay the leeks out evenly, taking care not to pile them too high. Cover with boiling water and cook for approx 5 mins with the lid on. Drain when tender, then run cold water over the leeks and drain again.

Step 2

Chop the nuts finely and combine with the hazelnut oil, citrus juices, zest and vinegar. Season to taste, then stir in the parsley.

Step 3

Next toss the leeks in a little extra oil and fry batches of them in a griddle or frying pan on a high heat. Cook for 1 min each side until hot and starting to char.

Step 4

Arrange on plates and spoon the dressing over the top.
