Creamy Leek Puree Recipe

Creamy Leek Puree Recipes

Ingredients :

2 lb (1 kg) leeks

1 green apple, peeled, cored and chopped

2 cups (16 fl oz / 500ml) vegetable stock

1 tbsp peeled and grated fresh ginger

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp cream

1 tsp sea salt, or to taste

freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method :

Trim leeks, and discard root end and green tops. Cut remaining sections in half lengthwise, then wash thoroughly and roughly chop into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces. Place leeks in a deep saucepan. Add apple, stock and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until leeks are tender, 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Pour mixture in a large bowl. Working in batches, ladle into a food processor and process until it forms a smooth puree, about 20 seconds. Transfer puree to a smaller saucepan. Place over medium heat, add butter and stir until butter melts, about 2 minutes. Stir in cream, salt and pepper to taste. Continue stirring over low heat until heated through, about 1 minute.

Remove from heat and serve warm.

Serves 4-6
