Baked baby leeks 
mixed veggies

Try this amazing quick vegetarian recipe of baked baby leeks, mushrooms, tomatoes, green beans and more as a satisfying starter or mein course. I came across the idea of this healthy and tasty vegetarian recipe while looking through "Annette Kesler's" book "Fresh and Healthy". 

My wife loves to eat healthy and this vegetarian recipe was right up her alley way. So additional benefit of being very delicious we'll definitely let me get back to this recipe in the future on more than one occasion. We added to the leeks a combination of some of our favorite fruit, vegetables and herbs and I am sure that there are many more tasty combinations you can come up with.
