Rice à la grecque


Rice à la grecque
Rice cooked "à la grecque" (Greek-style) is enlivened with sautéed leeks and mushrooms, cream and feta, to which the cooked rice is added at the end.

This is a hearty dish, usually served in its cooking pot in the centre of the table, so everyone can help themselves.
