    Leeks a cousin to the onion make a nice change from your regular beans and carrots.

      Wonderful and easy leek dish. Elegant and down to earth at the same time. I served it with one of my all time favourite sweet potato dishes #15918 - baked sweet potato fries, and halibut steaks broiled, your choice of seasonings. This is a heavenly meal. Thanks, Bergy.

      Once again, I've found one of Bergy's recipes that is GREAT! I subbed olive oil for the margarine and just added 1/4 cup chicken broth to the sauteed leeks before covering and simmering 5-10 min. Seasoned up with a bit of salt and pepper. What an incredibly flavorful dish! Thanks so much Bergy! I'll be keeping my eye out for your recipes. I know I can count on them to be delicious! :)

      Wow! I'm a big fan of leeks and this was a wonderfully quick and flavorful way to prepare them. A nice easy dish to make on the side while your main prepares but tastes like you spent forever on them. Rather than stirring I carefully turned occasionally with tongs to hold them together which I thought made for a nice presentation.
