Wrap leeks before putting them in your fridge - they give off an aroma that can be absorbed by other items.

Method

  1. Preheat grill to high. Cut the leeks in half and cook in boiling water for 3-4 mins.
  2. Drain the leeks and put in a baking dish. Melt the butter, then add the plain flour and cook for 1 min.
  3. Gradually add milk, stirring until you have a thick sauce.
  4. Stir in 100g (4oz) grated Cheddar and 1tbsp grain mustard. Season.
  5. Pour over leeks and top with some extra cheese. Grill for 5 mins.
