      Excellent flavour, simple to make, carrots really complement the leeks. Used lots of garlic as suggested, herbes de provence, salt and pepper. Served with a pork meat loaf. Vancouver BC

      This is only my second time cooking with leeks and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Cooking time was perfect though I did add another 1 TBSP water about 15 minutes into it because it looked a bit too dry to me. The colour was gorgeous so it is a nice showy side dish if you want to add some pizzazz to a meal. Thx Sarah!
