Braised Leeks

Last Saturday part of our Food for Families food pickup were two giant leeks. What in the work do you do with leeks!? So, tonight I found a recipe and we tried them out. They were delicious! One of my new favorite vegetables and the best part of tonights dinner! Here is the recipe. . .
  1. Cut the white and light green parts of the leek apart.
  2. Melt 1 tbsp. butter in a saucpan, add 1/2 c. water
  3. Add leeks and cover. Simmer for 14 minutes
  4. Flavor with salt and pepper.


  1. I thought those were green onions. Same thing?

  2. Probably same family, leeks are the papa onions - they are really big
