  • Warm the olive oil and add the leeks, and a little water, then cover with a tight fitting lid and cook for 2-3 minutes to soften. Then drain well in a colander.
  • Place the milk and stock cube into a pan bring to the boil.
  • Meanwhile mix the butter and flour together, to form a paste.
  • Once the milk is boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer, then whisk in the butter and flour mixture, and cook for 1 minute. The sauce needs to be nice and thick.
  • Add the mustard and pepper.
  • Take off the heat and stir in ¾ of the cheese and the warm leeks.
  • Slice the bread on a long angle, then brush with a little olive oil.
  • Griddle or toast the bread, then serve the leeks spooned over, sprinkle over a little more cheese.
