Grilled calcot onions with romesco are a Catalan delicacy but here sweet baby leeks make a delicious alternative. I could eat them all day long but, truly, any roasted vegetable is delicious served with romesco.


  • 12–15 baby leeks (approx. 350 g)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Make the romesco by pulsing the peppers, garlic, almonds, oil, vinegar, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and breadcrumbs together in a food processor or with a stick blender until everything is combined but still has texture.
