Very simple, so delicious! I served it on a bed of spaghetti pasta with some grated Parmesan on the top. Marvelous!

Oh, how I love leeks! This is a perfect, simple way to prepare them without having them take a backseat to some other vegetable. I used a rich chicken stock for this (so I only used 1 tbsp of butter) and the end result was incredible. Thanx for sharing!

I've made this a few times now, and my husband loves it. It's a great, easy dish. Leeks have a wonderful buttery flavor on their own, so you don't need to use butter, I used some evoo instead. Tastes great!

Delicious! This is only my second time preparing leeks and it was AMAZING! I only had 2 large leeks so I added half of my small cabbage (left over from saint pat's day =) and an onion because onions are good in anything. I just used water instead of stock because I didn't have salt free, and I served it over a cozy bed of rice and lentils. Delicious.

My husband thinks he doesn't like leeks, but I sort of "forced" him into it, when I made them as a side dish, and didn't give him a choice! Well.....needles to say, he is now a fan of them! Yay for this recipe! My kids are a bit harder of a sell. My oldest is pretty open-minded, and figured if Mom made them, they must be good. He was pleased as well! I'll work on the other 5, and in time, I'll have the whole bunch being "Leek Lovers"! Thanks for posting an easy, yet tasty way to prepare this yummy veggie!

I had never had/made leeks before but my husband loves them so I vowed to try. We both loved this recipe. The only thing I did wrong was to use regular (not low sodium) chicken broth because it was all I had. It was way too salty, so next time I will make sure to use the right kind. I served this over rice. Thanks so much.

Yum! Great side to Asian Salmon- TigerJo Asian Salmon. Next time I'll make a double batch (it went fast). I used olive oil with just a pat of butter, just enough to give it the butter taste. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Simple easy recipe that fills the bill. I enjoy leeks and served these with Walnut chicken, steamed carrots and rice. The chicken stock and the bit of butter enriched the leek flavor . I had a half onion in the fridge so I chopped that up and added it to the leeks Thanks Julesong for another leek recipe that I will continue to enjoy.
Made again and loved it just as much
