OK, I know ya’ll are fed up with fish already… But no worries, the salmon is there only because I had to use it while the fillet was still fresh :) The real super star here is the leek! Yummylicious!
Leeks Braised in Three Cheese Cream And Tarragon
(Serves 1-2 as a side, 140-280 kcal / serving)
1 big leek (about 500 g / 1 lbs)
1,2 dl (1/2 cups) cream
some emmental, gouda and cheddar
(in Finland, simply buy Valio three cheese cream ;)
1,2 dl chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
salt, pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 190 C (375 F). Cut off the dark green tops of the leek and trim off the roots, halve the leek lenghtwise and rinse thoroughly. Place in a long baking dish.
Mix the cream, chicken broth and tarragon. Grate a little bit of each cheese and mix with the sauce. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour the cream mixture over the leeks and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven, turn the leeks over and bake another 45 minutes, until the leeks are golden brown.
