Add carrots, turnips and cauliflower.

Stir well, but do not salt at this stage to prevent vegetables from releasing too much water.

Stage 9 - 7 min.

Cover and leave to cook 7 minutes.

We put these vegetables in first, because they take longer to cook than leeks, and leeks became a dull green if overcooked.

Stage 10 - 3 min.

Remarks

For success with this recipe, it's important that leeks stay a pretty green and are not overcooked, it's more attractive and tastier. That's why the lid is removed when they go in the pan as the last vegetables.

You can use a different kind of rice: apart from Thaï, there's Basmati, Italian, Camargue, etc.
