Baked Potatoes, Leeks and Carrots

"A very simple vegetable dish, great with any kind of meat or fish. Adapted from the Silver Spoon book of Italian cooking. A food processor makes this dish quite quick to prepare."

  1. This was a nice dish! I halved the recipe and enjoyed it. Thanks!
  2. The adults in my family loved this! (The kids are funny about veggies. Anything other then plain has them a little upset!) I loved how there was so very little fat. I used low fat cheddar (just a sprinkling really) and it was great as a side dish with chicken and apples. Have a great adventure, Sackville!


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
