    From P. Caunce and Son Brow Farm in Lancashire UK. In a bind? Hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds sub beautifully for the pine nuts.

    1. 1
      Prepare the leeks by slitting them lengthwise and washing carefully to remove any grit. Cut the leeks into 1/2 inch slices.
    2. 2
      Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a deep frying pan or skillet on medium heat and add the pine nuts.
    3. 3
      Fry the nuts until the kernels are golden brown. Make sure they don't burn! Immediately remove the pine nuts from the oil with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towel to drain.
    4. 4
      Reheat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to high heat, and add the leeks. Fry for a few minutes or until they start to brown in places. Then add the tomatoes. Bring back to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with minced fresh marjoram and the toasted pine nuts.

      Of course it was delicious. And very easy. And very quick. I actually used oregano from the garden instead of marjoram or chervil. Very yummy indeed. Made for Veggie Swap 11/12. xoxo
