Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Wow! amazing results despite being so simple to make. loved the sweetness from the leeks. I believe almost any cheese would work well here, so don't be put off if you don't have gruyere. - 25 Jun 2012
