DIRECTIONS

  • Split the leeks lengthways and wash each layer thoroughly.
  • Slice across into thin strips, including the green part as well.
  • Heat the oil and butter together over a gentle heat.
  • When the butter has melted, add the leeks and toss well.
  • Cook slowly, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until the leeks start to soften.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over all and, after a couple more minutes, mix well.
  • Continue to cook for 15 to 30 minutes, until the leeks have begun to collapse into a sticky mass.
  • Add small amounts of hot water if required to stop sticking.
  • While the leeks are cooking, cook and drain the noodles.
  • When the leeks are done, add the parsley, olive oil, cooked noodles and seasoning to taste.
  • Toss well and serve.
