Baked Feta Nested in Leeks

This evening I made one of those shake the fridge meals in order to avoid a trip to the market and happened on a combination that I just had to share. Feta, leeks and fennel seed – amazing and simple.

All you need is 1 block feta, 1 leek, small teaspoon of fennel seeds and 1/2 teaspoon of celery seeds. Slice the leek in half lengthwise and wash the soil from the upper part. Slice leak thinly and saute until just soft with the seed’s and a little oil. Cut the feta into about 1 in cubes and put on a greased ovenproof dish. Top with the leeks and bake for 15-20 minutes at around 180 degrees Celsius. I agitated the leek nest a couple of times to make sure the edges didn’t scorch during cooking, but other than that its pretty low care.
