By Lucy Parker @lucy_and_lentils for The British Leek Growers’ Association. For more recipes visit

Serves 2-4 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 35 mins | Calories 388 (per serving)

2 leeks

1 butternut squash

4 garlic cloves

1 roll of vegan filo pastry, quartered a large pinch of salt

½ tsp coriander

1 tsp mixed spice

1 tsp fresh thyme a large pinch of pepper

1 tsp olive oil pomegranate seeds and fresh thyme, to garnish

1 Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.

2 Slice the leeks (setting one or two slices aside to garnish at the end) and squash, roughly chop and peel the garlic cloves. Drizzle them all in olive oil and salt and then roast for 25 minutes.

3 Quarter all of the filo pastry sheets and, using a non-stick muffin tray, add one thin quarter and brush with olive oil, then layer with another two sheets. Repeat until you’ve filled 12 of the muffin holes.

4 Take the sliced leeks, garlic and squash out of the oven and pulse in a food processor with the spices for around 10 seconds until just combined. Raise the oven temperature to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

5 Add the filling to the pastry and bake for 10 minutes.

6 Top with the leftover leek slices, pomegranate seeds and a few sprigs of fresh thyme.
