Leek and potato gratin

We arrived at our home from home for a few days - not late, but quite tired - and there was an Aga... yay!  There was also quite a lot of house to explore, and a fire to light and curl up in front of ... so, a nice comforting bowl of yumminess...

Olive oil
2 big leeks
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Fennel seeds
Green beans
Dry white wine
Cheese, grated
Sliced tomatoes
Soya milk
Corn flour

1.  Chop and wash the leeks, sautee in olive oil, add fennel seeds and crushed garlic.
2.  Chop and boil the potatoes, steam chopped green beans on top of potatoes.
3.  When leeks are nearly soft add dry white wine, simmer for a few minutes.
4.  Drain potatoes.
5.  Make a sauce of leeks by adding soya milk, a fork full of cornflour slaked in water, and grated cheese.  Simmer for a few minutes, stirring while it thickens.
6.  Mix potatoes and leek sauce mixture in ovenproof dish.
7.  Top with sliced tomatoes, and grated cheese.
8.  Bake in lower part of hot Aga oven for 30 minutes.

Explore holiday home....

Scoff.  Have seconds.  And another glass of wine.  And ...... relax!
