Ham and leek bake
This hearty dish is easy and uses up leftovers beautifully.

2½ tbsp olive oil

450g leeks, trimmed and thickly sliced

450ml vegetable stock

100g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for rolling the dough

75ml non-fat natural yogurt

1 tsp thyme leaves, plus extra to decorate

140g frozen peas

85g chunk of leftover ham, shredded

1 small apple or ½ large apple, grated

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Prepare a large pie dish

Heat ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan, then fry the leeks, stirring until they start to soften.

Add the stock, then simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, tip the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre, then add the yogurt, the remaining oil, thyme leaves and a little salt.

Using a knife, mix together to make a soft dough.

Turn out onto floured surface and divide into 4 small rounds.

Stir the peas, ham and grated apple into the leeks, then divide between 4 individual pie dishes or one large oven dish.

Top each with a round of dough, scatter with more thyme, then bake for 20 minutes until golden.
