Creamy Leek Stew

The combination of flavours of creme fraiche, leek and nutmeg compliment each other well, making this a simple and tasty stew. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 sticks of celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 leeks, washed and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 150ml creme fraiche
  • 150ml water
 

Method:

  1. Fry the onion and celery in the oil over a medium heat until the onion starts to soften.
  2. Add the leeks, nutmeg and some black pepper and stir well to make sure everything is coated.
  3. Turn the heat down a little to medium-low and place a lid on the pan.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times to check it's not sticking.
  5. Add the creme fraiche and water to the pan and mix well.
  6. Cook for 10 more minutes, again stirring 2 or 3 times to check it's not sticking.
  7. Serve with crusty bread or potato wedges.
 
Serves 2.
