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.
Fry the leeks in a small dash of olive oil for a few minutes until they start to brown.
Add the onions and mince and fry until everything is browned. Ensure you keep stirring to prevent the leeks catching and burning.
Add the rice and stir together for a few minutes ensuring the rice is well blended and coated in any juices.
Add the lamb stock, salt and pepper. Give it a good stir and leave it to come to the boil. Leave to boil for 2 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a large baking tray, place on the bottom self of a preheated oven at 180 degrees. Leave to bake for up to 1 hour. The dish is ready when all the liquid is evaporated and the rice is soft.
