Leek Patties

This is an ancient Jewish-Italian recipe from the days when Jewish merchants traded spices and herbs with the chefs of ancient Rome.

Ingredients:

4 medium leeks, washed and trimmed
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
50 ml full fat milk
2 thick slices wholemeal bread with crusts removed, soaked in the milk and squeezed dry
2-3 tbsp polenta
1 egg, beaten
3 tsp fresh oregano (1 tsp if dried)
a pinch of salt
fresh pepper
rape seed oil for frying

With a sharp pointed knife slit the leeks in half leaving them joined at the base.

Make another slit to cut them in quarters then rinse thoroughly to remove any grit.

Cut into 1” chunks and cook in boiling water till soft. Drain well and puree in a food processor.

Sweat the chopped onion in the olive oil, add pureed leeks, oregano, bread, polenta, seasoning and egg.

Mix thoroughly and shape into small flat patties.

Adjust the amount of polenta till you get a manageable consistency.

Heat the rape seed oil in a large pan, fry the patties for a minute or two on each side till crisp, remove and drain on kitchen paper.

These are delicious hot, warm or cold but, like pancakes, they'll get eaten quicker than you can cook them.
