moisture is released and then evaporates. Transfer leek mixture to a bowl
and stir in goat’s cheese, sour cream and Tabasco; season to taste with
salt and white pepper. In 2 shallow bowls, mix flour with 1 tablespoon
Bayou Blast in one and bread crumbs with remaining tablespoon Creole
seasoning in the second. When cool enough to handle, form leek mixture into
4 patties (if very sticky, moisten your hands with water). Dredge cakes
first in flour, then in bread crumb mixture, coating them thoroughly. In
clean skillet heat remaining tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. When
hot, add breaded cakes and saute until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes per

plates and top with leek cakes. Mound some Marinated Lentils alongside,
sprinkle with parsley and drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar. This
