Tavë me Presh – Recipe #4

The translation for Tavë me Presh is baked leeks.


2 lbs leeks
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 lb ground meat
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
Mild red pepper, chopped
Salt & Pepper


Trim ends of leeks and cut into one inch pieces. Saute leeks in olive oil until soft. Place leeks in baking dish. Saute onion and minced meat in remaining oil(use your discretion on how much oil you want to use-we did not use the whole amount). Add tomato sauce, red pepper, S&P, and add enough meat stock/water to bring to a boil. Pour meat mixture over leeks and bake in the oven for 1 hour at 375 degrees.

Review: Simple and easy recipe to make. We enjoyed the flavour and it was nice to have a dish where leeks were the main ingredient.
