    1. 1
      Quarter the leeks lengthwise; cut them crosswise into 1/4 inch slices. Remove any tough papery husks from the garlic, then finely chop the bulbs.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter in a saute pan. Add the leeks and garlic, stir to coat then add the wine and cook over medium-low heat until the leeks are tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside while you cook the rice.
    3. 3
      Have the stock simmering. Melt the butter in a wide soup pot over medium heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
    4. 4
      Pour in the wine and simmer until absorbed, then add 2 cups of stock. Simmer until absorbed then raise the heat to high and add the stock 1/2 cup at a time. Stir and continue adding liquid after each addition is absorbed. When the rice is done, stir in the leeks, cream, cheese, parsley and any minced garlic shoots. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.

      YUM! I didn't have green garlic, so used regular garlic and used 3 giant cloves. I also halved the recipe. Great taste and so creamy. I loved it! Thanks! Made for the Secret Ingredient game.
