Healthy Braised Leeks Cooking Recipes

Braised Leeks

Serves 4


  • 1 pound leeks

  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cut the roots and all of the tough green tops off the leeks, leaving only the white and the most tender green part.

  2. Slice them in half lengthwise and rinse, making sure to get any grit out.

  3. In a large saucepan, heat the butter or olive oil over medium heat.

  4. Add the leeks and stir to coat.

  5. Cook for about 5 minutes, then pour in the water and add salt and pepper.

  6. Cover loosely and simmer very gently for 15 to 20 minutes, until the leeks are tender and most of the water has evaporated.
