The original recipe (in Spanish) is made with Gorgonzola cheese (see picture), but as an addict of Oxford Blue, I decided to use that instead.

Method

  1. Poach the leek in a pan, with a little olive oil over a medium heat.
  2. When the leeks begin to soften and add the sesame seeds. (If the seeds are already toasted, you can add them at the end with the nuts.)
  3. Pour in the evaporated milk when the leek is well cooked, season, bring to the boil then reduce the heat to medium-low
  4. Stir from time to time and remove from heat once the mixture has thicknened slightly.
  5. Place the mixture into a large bowl or blender glass, add the cheese and mix well so that the melts in the heat.
  6. Add the nuts and blend until the mixture is of a fine, creamy consistency.
  7. Taste, and adjust the seasoning if necessary and a little milk to make it lighter if desired.
