Suffolk Pie

Yum, originally uploaded by Beverly Sutphin.

It's recipe time again folks. Here's something that Tinseltroos and I created whilst on holiday the weekend before last. In the manner of Danny's Camberwell Carrot from Withnail and I we have named our dish Suffolk Pie because it is the shape of a pie and we created it in Suffolk.

Here's what you do. Slice up three leeks, a red onion, a red and a green pepper and two courgettes (zucchini). Fry the leeks and onion in olive oil for a few minutes until they begin to go translucent then add the rest of the veg and cook for another ten minutes or so. Season to taste. Add some chopped parsley and take off the heat and spoon into a shallow ceramic dish. Make a Mornay sauce or if you can't be bothered with that just heat some créme frâiche in a pan and add the cheese to that. We used mature cheddar for a good strong flavour. Pour this mixture over the vegetables. Sprinkle bread cut into half inch cubes over the top and then sprinkle a little more grated cheese on top. Put the pie into a hot oven until the bread/cheese looks golden and delicious.

It made us very happy. I'd recommend it to anyone who's headed toward winter at the moment.

Oh, we should probably mention that the red and green peppers here are the 'sweet' or 'bell' peppers. Sorry if that's patronising and/or obvious... but, if memory serves, the American terminology for peppers is a bit different.
