SWEET & SOUR LEEKS WITH RICOTTA

 

Take 5 Ingredients
by James Tanner

It is what it says: sweet and sour. The slightly salty creamy ricotta goes really well with the leeks and makes this dish a winner.
Serves 4
 

INGREDIENTS

    • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
    • 1½ cups water
    • 8 small leeks
    • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 3/4 cup ricotta, crumbled
     

DIRECTIONS

Pour the white wine vinegar into a large pan (large enough to accommodate the leeks whole) and add the sugar and water. Bring to a boil and add the leeks. Bring back to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 8 minutes until the leeks are soft and tender. Remove from the pan and drain, discarding the liquid.

Preheat the broiler. Using a sharp knife, cut the leeks in half lengthwise and place in a 9-inch square gratin dish. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes and ricotta. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes until the ricotta is golden and bubbling.

Leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving.

TIP
If you're not vegetarian, this is a great side dish to serve with glazed ham; it works beautifully with the flavors.
