A simple recipe from the MEAT cookbook -- a great side to a roast.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 leeks, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 savoy cabbage, roughly shredded or 1 winter greens, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and sweat the leeks for 6-8 minutes until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, steam the greens over boiling water for about 2 minutes.
  3. If you prefer, you can also lightly saute them in the frying pan.
  4. Combine the leeks and the greens and season.
  5. The leeks should be soft and the greens still fairly crunchy.
