Leek and Onion Crumble

This is a savory crumble which has a flavor similar to french onion soup. A good winter warmer.


  • 35g butter

  • 800g red onions, roughly chopped

  • 3 large leeks, washed and sliced into 2 cm pieces

  • 75g butter

  • 150g flour

  • 50g oats

  • 75g finely grated cheese (cheddar or similar)

  • 1 tsp mustard powder



  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

  2. Melt the butter in a large pan and add the leeks and red onions.

  3. Cook on a medium heat for twenty to 30 minutes. You want to get the onions to really start to caramelize/burn.

  4. While those are cooking remember to stir it every 5 minutes or so.

  5. Mix the butter and flour together in a bowl, using your fingers to rub them together until they look like fine breadcrumbs.

  6. Add the mustard powder, oats and cheese to the flour and butter and mix well.

  7. Add 75ml of water to the onion pan to pull the flavors off the side of the pan and stir well.

  8. Pour the onions and leeks (with liquid) into an ovenproof dish.

  9. Cover with the flour mixture and gently press it down.

  10. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Serves 2 to 3.
