2. Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and spray with the oil. Add the leek and cook for 5 mins or until softened. Add the mince and brown, stirring to break up any clumps. Add the mustard and stock and simmer for 2 mins before adding the soft cheese. Stir into the sauce until melted.
