This was a very nice side dish. So simple and yet, lots of flavor. I will definitely be making this one again.
Lovely recipe. I had 4 smaller leeks and it came up 1lb. It was a little sour for me so I added just a touch of agave. My teenage boys even liked it. Thanks Don for another keeper!
My son gobbled it up! If a recipe can make a teen eat leeks, it's a keeper!
Loved this simple recipe. It was hard to determine how many pounds of leeks to buy to get 2-lbs. of whites. I didn't buy enough, so I just made a half a batch. I really enjoyed the subtle tas...
I really didn't think this would be so tasty. I was very surprised that it was so good! We ate it with teriyaki chicken and rice. Will make this again for sure!
