Leek and Mushroom Casserole GratinLolibox
Take this Christmas casserole to the next office holiday party for a fresh vibrant side dish. Warming bitter licorice flavored leeks are softened by the earthy deep tones from the mushrooms. Amandina, an almond extract, delivers a sweet, nutty flavor that stand out, especially in aroma. Keeping the vegetables slightly crunchy and not overcooking them in the wok is the key to a bold flavor palate. Grate a generous amount of cheese overtop the mini-casserole dishes before placing in the oven to form a solid crust keeping the vegetables hot, but not burnt.
