DIRECTIONS

  • Clean the leeks and rinse well to get rid of sand and soil.
  • Cut off the ends of the dark green parts, leaving all the white parts plus a suggestion of pale green. (Reserve the extra greens for soup stock.).
  • Put the leeks in a large pot and cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Pour off the liquid and reserve.
  • Place the leeks in a bowl.
  • The juice is to be drunk (reheated or at room temperature to taste) every 2 to 3 hours, 1 cup at a time.
  • For meals, or whenever hungry, have some of the leeks themselves, 1/2 cup at a time.
  • Drizzle with a few drops of extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
  • Season sparingly with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley if you wish.
  • This will be your nourishment for both days, until Sunday dinner, when you can have a small piece of meat or fish (4 to 6 ounces -- don't lose that scale yet!), with 2 vegetables, steamed with a bit of butter or olive oil, and a piece of fruit.
