Easy, delicious, low fat potato bake.


  • 1/2 Large Leek (thinly sliced)
  • Canola oil spray

1. Preheat the oven to 200 C. Lightly spray a 20cm baking dish.
2. Place the leeks in a microwave safe container and lightly spray with oil. Cook, uncovered on high for 2 minutes, or until soft.
3. Whisk together the stock, sour cream/ricotta, garlic and salt in jug with a fork.
4. Arrange 1/4 of the potatoes and leek over the base of the dish. Pour 1/4 of the stock mixture over the top. Repeat 3 times.
5. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are just tender.
6. Remove from the oven and remove the foil. Lightly spray with cooking oil. Add the cheese on top (optional) and season with salt. Bake uncovered for another 30 minutes, or until the edges are crisp.
