Olive oil

Salt and pepper


Hot chili flakes or red paprika

1/2 cup tahini paste

1/2 cup water

Juice from half a lemon 


  1. Put leeks in a baking pan and sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Bake in a hot oven (220 C) for half an hour.
  3. Prepare tahini sauce by combining ingredients.
