The classic leek rice becomes leek rice with colorful peppers and is wonderful in color and taste.

The truth is that the classic leek rice wanted its upgrade. Not that it is not tasty and as we have used to eat it but by adding tomatoes and colorful peppers it becomes even more nutritious, even more summery, even more delicious.

You can have it with vegan feta or vegan cream cheese.
