Have a Good Leek 'n Wine

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

If you don't like leeks drink the sauce and you won't care. This is a very tasty dish, There is a minimal amount of sauce at the end of the cooking - the sauce is just intended to add extra flavor to the leeks and glaze them

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a skillet, add garlic and leeks and saute for 3 minutes.
  2. Add wine, season, cook covered for 10 minutes or until the leeks are tender.
  3. Remove the leeks- keep warm reduce the sauce until there is apprx 3 tbsp-takes apprx 3 minutes
  4. Add a teaspoon of vinegar taste and if you like add a few more drops until you have the flavor you want.
  5. Pour sauce over the leeks garnish with parsley.
  6. You may serve this dish hot or cold. I prefer it hot

I made this last night, possibly using less leek than was called for (used 5 medium rather than 8 small leeks) and found that there wasn't enough sauce, despite doubling the amount of wine used. The leeks were well cooked but the sauce was just not very exciting.

Thanks so much for this recipe! I have been searching for a recipe very similar to this which I lost about 5 years ago. I cooked these as a side for a roasted chicken and placed them in the roasting pan during the last 5 minutes of roasting. They get super crisp that way. I'm so glad I found this! Thank you!!
