Simple Sunday Supper

Further to my freezer totally defrosting last week, I’m currently in mourning…and very dubious about the wisdom of storing food in the freezer for fear it happens again.

And you wouldn’t believe how often I have thought, ‘I’ll just get some soup from the freezer’ or ‘I really fancy some peas with this meal’…or maybe you would?

Supper last night was a simple affair.  There’s no recipe as it was ‘thrown together’ really, and based on ingredients that I fancied.

Washed and sliced into rounds – two sweet potatoes…

A bit rough-looking around the edges, but plenty of fresh black pepper and a grinding of salt with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes them glossy:

And ready to go on a baking sheet – protection for the tray is highly recommended as these potatoes aren’t called ‘sweet’ for nothing!

Bake in the oven(200*C fan) for 30 minutes, turn half-way through.

Trim and rinse two leeks – rinsing removes bits of soil, but if you prefer to crunch on that then…just don’t!

Chop into chunks and saute in a frying pan with a little butter.  On a low heat with the lid on, so they can sweat until soft.

Serve like so, and enjoy!

A sprinkle of strong grated Cheddar on the leeks, and a good dollop of Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce for the sweet potatoes – heaven!

The potatoes are so sweet and satisfying, and the salt & pepper give them a contrasting savoury hint, combined with the oh-so-savoury flavour of the leeks…and the sharpness of the cheddar with the garlic and chilli in the sauce provide a plate that will cause your taste buds to explode.

Tell me your favourite ‘throw together’ meal.
