  • 1 small vegetarian Camembert or other rinded soft cheese, sliced with the rind on

Method

  1. In a shallow microwavable dish toss the leeks in half the butter and cook on High for 5 mins until they begin to soften. Stir in the cabbage and mushrooms and add the crème fraîche. Lay the potato slices over the vegetables pressing them down with a fish slice.

  2. Dot the potatoes with the remaining butter and microwave, uncovered, for 15-20 mins on High until they are done. Scatter over the cheese and thyme, and either microwave on High to melt for 2 mins, or grill until crisp and brown. Leave to stand for a few mins and serve straight from the dish.

Was really delicious & will definately make it again. Would be nice with any kind of cheese as topping. Really easy to make & very quick.

Absolutley crap. Horrible. The cheese (camembert light), didn't melt, not in the microwave, under the grill or even in the oven. Yes, good by means of no washing up, but is a horrible mess, and it has been the worst thing i've ever made in my whole entire life. I would not recommend it unless, you want to be dissapointed.
