  3. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and simmer leeks just until tender, about 7 minutes; drain thoroughly.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed, lightly browned, and a sharp knife inserted near the centre comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove to cool until warm or room temperature before serving.
