    About this recipe: Slowly braising whole baby vegetables will preserve their nutrients and intensify their flavours. Reducing the cooking juices in the final stages creates a healthy, glossy sauce.

    • 4 baby leeks (250 g), trimmed, halved lengthways and washed thoroughly
    • 250 g baby parsnips, trimmed and halved lengthways

    • 8 small white onions or shallots, trimmed and peeled
    • ½ cup (125 ml) vegetable stock
