      This was amazing! I cooked too much and can't rememeber the last time that meant leaving the main to make sure to finish the side dish. Only change I made was I only had dried chives so used those during cooking and garnished with fresh flat leaved parsely.

      I love leeks and the flavor from roasting them was wonderful. My roasting pan is large and the leeks fit nicely in one layer, I also used vegetable stock. Was not real sure what a good white wine was so I bought a cheaper dry wine and it worked nicely for the mustard cream. The golden brown of leeks and flavor, the mustard cream, and chives....a great combination!

      DH loves leeks, so an easy winner of a recipe to serve up! Unfortunately I was a bit pushed for time so had to cut the leeks into slices and 'braise' them in a lidded saucepan, but I can imagine that they'd be great roasted and cooked as per instructions (and I'll allow myself the time next time I serve this). The sauce was lovely; a bit thinner than I was anticipating, but then I was in a hurry and rather generous with the wine!
