Could you please post a recipe for the leek & cereals casserole. I kinda think that I sorta don't know what it is. Anything with leeks is usually good. Thanks.
Actually, it's a variation on a recipe I usually make with zucchini. Was even better with leek!
For 4 small servings (bf eats it with meat, I eat it on its own so I usually have 1 1/2 serving)
1 1/2 cups pre-cooked cereals (I use a ready mix of quinoa, spelt, red rice and wild rice but feel free to experiment. Would be 1/2 cup of raw cereals. Rice or small pasta like orzo will also do great
1 cup ricotta (or heavy cream)
3 TBSP freshly grated parmesan
2 TBSP bread crumbs
2 TBSP almond meal (or parmesan)
1 TBSP olive or canola oil
Salt and pepper
Discard the green parts of the leeks (keep them for a soup!), wash them and slice them finely.
In a pan, sauté leek in olive oil until soft. Add ricotta and stir well to mix. At this point you might want to add a dash of milk to make it more liquidy. Depends on the quality of your ricotta.
Add parmesan and stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Lay cereals flats in the bottom of a baking pan and top with the leek/ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and almond meal (parmesan).
Bake at 450° until golden brown.
