Sautéed Green Apples and Leeks

Sautéed Green Apples and Leeks created by Bergy

Found this German recipe on one of my favorite vegetarian websites. Leeks & apples go quite well together so I'm looking forward to trying this. When i do get to it, I'm thinking of adding a bit of fresh sage. Posted for the Zaar World Tour

Ready In:
16mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 large leeks, white parts only
  • 2 teaspoons margarine (divided) or 2 teaspoons butter, preferably unsalted (divided)
  • 2 large granny smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

directions

  • Split the leeks in half lengthwise and trim the bottoms, leaving a little of the root end intact so that they stay together. Wash well several times and dry. Cut lengthwise into thin strips, about 2 inches long.
  • In a medium skillet (nonstick is best) over medium heat, melt teaspoon of margarine. Add the leeks and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, melt the remaining teaspoon of margarine and add the apple slices. Turn the heat to high and cook until the apples are lightly browned and softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Return the leeks to the pan and toss together to combine.
  • Serve immediately.

    Beautiful recipe! The granny smiths gave it that perfect tang. I added a handful of burberries when finished and it tasted fabulous - thank you!

    I used olive oil instead of butter and a gala apple instead of a granny smith. Unexpectedly amazing. Quick little lunch.

    This turned out better than I imagined. I used more butter than stated, but that just made it yummier. This was so simple and quick to make. Thanks for sharing.

    Very tasty! I used one granny smith apple and one gala apple. It was simple and quick to make. I used a lot more butter than called for, because I misread the recipe. I think it would still taste great with the amount of butter in the recipe. Reviewed for ZWT 4, 2008.
