Ingredients

2 leeks 600 g
45 mL Classic Vinaigrette 3 tbsp
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 65 mL
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
8 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced 110 g
2 tomatoes, sliced 240 g
2 carrots, shredded 200 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the leeks: cut off the dark green tops and discard, slice the white and pale-green parts into large chunks, then boil or steam them for about 10 min, until soft. Drain the leeks and let cool a few minutes.
  2. With a serrated knife, cut each chunk of the leeks into rounds about 1 cm thick and transfer them to a bowl. Pour in the Classic Vinaigrette, then season with salt and pepper. Blend gently and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Beat well, using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the other vegetables and place them in 3 different bowls. Thinly slice the mushrooms; slice the tomatoes; peel the carrots, then shred them using a large-holed grater. Portion out the lemon vinaigrette to the bowls, then toss to combine.
  5. Arrange the dressed vegetables in 4 separate mounds onto individual serving plates. Serve.

Remarks

Leeks may be cooked 2-3 days in advance.

Having a mustard allergy, I buy my own gluten-free vegan dressing and skip the Classic Vinaigrette. A Balsamic Vinaigrette goes nice with the leeks.
