If leek and potato soup and bubble and squeak had babies, they would come out looking like my leek and potato patties: succulently sweet leek and garlicky mashed potato, encased in a crunchy golden coating:
Dinner 1: with warm lentil salad and chargrilled peppers (recipe coming soon)
Leek and potato patties:
Makes 8 patties
2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
1 medium leek, sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Plain flour for dusting
salt and pepper
Boil the potatoes until they yield to the point of a knife, drain and mash. Fry the leek and garlic until soft, add to the mashed potatoes and mix together. Season the mixture, form into 8 patties and dust with flour. If possible, leave in the fridge until cold. Fry the patties on both sides until golden and serve.
Dinner 2: I fried the lentils and peppers together with some other random bits and bobs that I happened to have lying around (not as aesthetically pleasing, but actually most delicious)
Secret tip: these freeze brilliantly and cook especially well from frozen. This provided me with two yummy suppers, pictured above.
In other excitements: coming soon, a Christmas swish. Date for your diaries: Thursday 17th December.
