From The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet, by Nava Atlas. Leeks and carrots both have a natural sweetness that mingles nicely. This is a mild and pleasant side dish, good with pasta, potatoes, and soy dishes. We loved this dish.

Wonderful side dish! I love carrots, and love this new way to prepare them. I didn't use the nutmeg (because I forgot) but will next time. Also, I added a sprinkle of garlic powder and small amount of agave at the end for a little sweetness. A definite keeper- thanks Dancer!

I cut the recipe in half - I didn't use oil just tossed the veggies so they wouldn't stick. Excellent flavor, super easy to make.. TRhanks Dancer for yet another super recipe
