How to Cook Leeks Vegetables

Boiled Leeks

Whole trimmed leeks can be boiled or braised in water to cover for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the leek. Test after 20 minutes with the point of a sharp knife to see if they are tender. The leeks should be easily cut but not falling into a mush. Serve hot or at room temperature, seasoned with salt and pepper and perhaps a drizzle of olive oil or vinaigrette dressing.

Steamed Leeks

Arrange whole trimmed leeks in one layer in a steamer basket or colander. Steam, covered, over simmering water for 20 minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the leeks. Sliced leeks can be steamed in the same way, but cut the time to 10 minutes or a little longer depending on the size of the pieces, test with the point of a sharp knife after about 10 minutes.
