      This was actually the first time I ever picked up some leeks, so I wanted to do something simple that centered around them.I'm glad I found this recipe! Though it is delicious on its own, I admit I changed it slightly at the end. I didn't add any nutmeg, but instead added a few dashes of black pepper, worcestershire and a squirt of hoisin sauce. Yum! And the spinach and leeks went together beautifully! Thank you! I'm definitely going to make this often.

      This was a nice change from ordinary spinach. I used a bag and a half of baby spinach and 2 leeks and that worked well. We had a little left over that I put in our eggs in the morning and that was also really good!

      I'm not opposed to spinach...but its not my favourite either. This vegetable combination was quite tasty & one that I will make again. Since the amount of salt or nutmeg wasn't specified, I just sprinkled very lightly - next time, I'll add more. Thanx Jenny!!
