Baked Leeks with Pecorino
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. If you do not have Pecorino, use Parmigiano Reggiano.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim leeks, slice open lengthwise and rinse carefully. Place in flat dish, cover with waxed paper or parchment, and microwave on high 3 minutes. Arrange the blanched leeks in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Cover with broth, olive oil, sesame or hemp seeds and tuck in the bay leaves. Bake 25-30 minutes. To serve, arrange leeks on a platter, removing the bay leaves. To the pan juices whisk in the honey, vinegar, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the leeks, and then garnish with the cheese.
