Sautéed Leeks

It's hard to believe that such a quick recipe could produce such a delicious result, but it does!


Serves 4



Sautéed Leeks
Ingredients
 2 lb (900 g) leeks, trimmed and rinsed
 1-2 teaspoons butter
 Salt and freshly milled black pepper

Method

Start by cutting the trimmed leeks vertically all the way through, then chop them across into 1 inch (2.5 cm) pieces.

Now melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat - it needs to coat the base of the pan.

Add the leeks, together with some seasoning, stir them around, then turn the heat down to low and let them cook gently for about 5 minutes, uncovered, stirring them 2 or 3 times. Use a draining spoon to serve.
