SPRING LEEKS AND PEAS

It’s lovely to discover new favourite dishes, and this leek side, which I created as part of my Easter meal, is really easy to do, delicious, and makes a nice addition to any family meal, especially a roast dinner.

The great thing about leeks is that they are grown in the UK, they are cheap to buy and they have loads of flavour!
