GLUTEN FREE STEAMED LEEK AND CUMBRIAN CHEDDAR CHEESE PUDDING


I've made a conscious effort to try whenever possible to make our dishes at the Rosehill Theatre Restaurant Gluten free, it really isn't as difficult as you'd imagine, this recipe is reasonably simple, with just a few ingredients, you can if you want add other things to it, mushrooms, peppers etc



This recipe is absolutely delicious and will satisfy even the most staunch meat eaters amongst us, and with the added bonus of being gluten free and vegetarian

This recipe will make 4 puddings


SHOPPING LIST


225g of sliced washed leeks

225g of gluten free self raising flour

A good pinch of salt

100g of vegetarian suet

200g of Good extra matured Cumbrian cheddar, grated

150ml of water

Ground black pepper


METHOD


1. Blanch the leeks in boiling salted water for 1 minute, drain and allow to cool

2. In a bowl, sift the flour and salt, mix in the suet, a good pinch of pepper and 3/4 of the grated cheese

3. Add the cool leeks and enough cold water to form a soft dough, don't over work the dough

4. Lightly flour and butter one large, or four smaller pudding basins

5. Fill each basin half full with the mixture, place more grated cheese in the centre, and top with more mixture

6. Press down gently and cover your basins with pleated buttered foil, and secure

7. Steam for 1 3/4 hours, the pudding should be firm to the touch

8. You can serve these puddings as they are or with a unctuous cheese sauce with a touch of added English mustard

Happy cooking
