Loving the beautiful young leeks in the veg box lately. Sometimes they’re just too nice for a classic leek and potato soup, a delicious staple though that is. These fried patties are very more-ish and go well with oven-cooked, skin-on chips or wedges made from organic spuds or sweet potatoes. And a bowl of peppery green salad leaves from Regather farm or Wortley (or our other great growers, of course!).
The quantities below are estimates – forgive this, it was a bit of an experiment at the time. Just make sure your uncooked mixture can be formed into patties reasonably easily. Add extra breadcrumbs if too wet. If you’re lucky enough to have new-season spinach leaves, you could substitute them for the rocket.
