Leeks blend well with red lentils and crunchy cod fillets, here in a breadcrumb of "sour cream chips".

At the moment I have a preference for leeks, which I have observed for many years only as a soup. Of course, he was in the 90s, when the midnight soup was a must at any party, cooked with cheese and also my favorite, but then he found until now only in vegetable soups inevitably his place.

(Crisps, crisps, stacks, and similar nibbling become a great panade for meat, poultry, and fish when chopped into a freezer bag with a glass bottle or dough roller and used like breadcrumbs.)
