“Leeks and beans” simply screams winter comfort food! And comforting for sure - this skillet dish is deliciously flavoursome and cooked with fresh leeks, cooked cannellini beans, thyme, garlic and cheesy seasonings such as miso paste and nutritional yeast. Finished off with melted vegan cheese on top, it’s a true delight to dig into and it’s fantastic served with roasted potatoes or fresh bread.

Prep time: 5 minutes
