Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 leeks, trimmed and washed, (white part only)
45g butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Put leeks into a saucepan with butter, salt, pepper and water barely to cover. Bring to the boil, half-cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking for about 10 more minutes or until leeks are tender and liquid reduced to about 125 ml.
  2. Transfer leeks to a shallow baking dish, pour cooking juices over them and cover loosely with foil. Place in a preheated very hot oven and cook for about 8 minutes or until leeks are golden.

Variation

  • Leeks parmigiana: Prepare braised leeks, transfer to a shallow flameproof dish and pour cooking juices over them. Sprinkle with 50 g grated parmesan cheese and place under a preheated grill for 1–2 minutes to brown the surface. Serve immediately.
