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.
