About this Recipe

This Albanian Leek and Rice Bake is a very simple, cheap yet tasteful recipe that is common in small outer city villages. Although the leeks are sweet, as there are no other sweet ingredients the rice and mince make the dish quite savoury and with the rice quite filling too.

Similar (yet simpler) to Albanian Baked Leeks (Tavë me Presh), it makes a great family one pot meal.

Create this leek and rice bake with ease. Sweet leeks with onion, mince and rice all baked together in one dish. A simple and cheap family meal.
