Created by Chef Aaron Bashy for "Chef on a Shoestring." The CBS Saturday Early Show challenge was to create a gourmet 3 course meal for 4 people for less than $20. I love leeks, but often find them overpowered in dishes where they aren't the main attraction. This recipe really showcases the leeks in all their subtle glory by caramelizing them and then adding just a few ingredients to complement the leek itself. In fact, the recipe features 3 of my favorite ingredients: leeks, feta cheese and Kalamata olives. Can't go wrong with that combination. To prepare leeks, trim off the tough dark green bits and the roots. Cut in half lengthwise then swish in a bowl of clean water to remove the sand and sediment that gets trapped between the rings of the leek. The wine is optional, but recommended.
