I used to make a lovely leek & blue cheese lasagne, the recipe was from Tesco. I don't suppose anyone has it? I have looked online but can't find it.

I think you used to simmer the leeks in wine/veg stock with thyme & I can't remember the rest!

Many Thanks x

Shamelessly place marking! That sounds amazing.

Thank you, we had chard (out of leeks) and blue cheese lasagna for dinner tonight because of your post.

Made a white sauce, added half a tub of ricotta and about 3oz of blue cheese, seasoned with celery salt.
Fried an onion then added a clove of garlic, a chopped yellow pepper and the chard stalks, sweated it all some more. Deglazed the pan with cider (no white wine) and stirred in the shredded leaves until wilted. Same technique would work with leeks. More celery salt and a few herbs.
Layered it up, topped with grated wensledale and baked for 35 mins at gas mark 5
There don't seem to be any leftovers grin

I know the exact recipe you're thinking of! I've got it written in my recipe folder at home so I'll dig it out later. I can't recall quantities, but the essence of it is to slowly saute the leeks in butter, drain and reserve the liquid, layer the leeks with thyme and stilton and lasagne and then pour the liquid over it. Sounds an odd method but is delicious.

That sounds amazing! I want to make that now!

Laska5772 Tue 24-Oct-17 14:23:45

Oh yes please can you hear the people sing I would love the recipe. Thank you x

Even my Dad who doesn't rate veggie food loved it, I think I served it at the time with some roasted veg.

Shameless placeholding message as it sounds amazing!!!

1. Chop up some leeks and fry till translucent
2. Roughly crumble some blue cheese
3. Throw it all away
Hth 😁
P.S. not a blue cheese or leek fan.

This sounds delicious. Blatant place mark.

Here's the recipe - the fact it's in lbs and oz shows how long I've had it (have been using kg for years!)

The bits in brackets are my observations/comments etc.

It really is very tasty - not healthy at all, but you really do need to use the amounts of butter/cheese it states. It's one of those recipes that just sounds a peculiar method, and when you're making it you just don't think it's going to work very well. But it does...

The recipe doesn't mention seasoning anywhere, but if you use salted butter you prob wouldn't need any extra salt. Probably no harm in lightly seasoning the cooked leeks to taste.

2lbs trimmed leeks, finely chopped
4oz butter
4oz stilton (I always use more than this - 4oz seems a bit stingy)
Thyme (recipe doesn't give an amount - but a good few sprigs, I'd say!)
Dried lasagne sheets (doesn't work with fresh lasagne - must be dried)

Wash the leeks (important to do this after chopping, as the residual water helps them cook)
Melt the butter gently in a wok (or deep non-stick pan) and add the leeks. Cook until softened. Drain leeks RESERVING ALL THE LIQUID THEY WERE COOKED IN (put this in caps because I forgot once and it scuppers the whole recipe)
Put a layer of lasagne sheets on the bottom of the dish, add a layer of leeks and 1/3 of the stilton, crumbled, and a sprinkle of thyme leaves. Repeat this twice more, so you end with a layer of leeks/stilton.

Add water to the cooking juices to make it up to 350ml

Pour this liquid around the edge of the dish. Cover with foil and cook @180c for 45-50 mins, removing foil for the last 15 mins.

Should have said... it serves 4.

I guess the key question - is this actually the recipe you were thinking of OP??

Laska5772 Wed 25-Oct-17 11:04:07

Looks fab! Thanks!!flowers

Dizzy2014 Wed 25-Oct-17 12:45:44

It sounds very similar, I am going to try this one at the weekend. I think you had to cut the leeks into rounds and stand up in a pan with wine/veg stock/thyme but its the sauce I can't remember. This sounds delicious. Many thanks CanYouHearThePeopleSing I will be back next week to let you know how I got on!

Loving all the ideas here. Thanks MrsPestilence especially for the idea about using chard.
I have made my first ever lasagne using chard, blue cheese and butternut squash. It worked brilliantly.
