Sunday I made a good, but very rich, dinner. Not really on my diet... but hey, it was only one dinner.
1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C butter
5 Leeks, cut in about 1 inch sections, washed well! (soaked and rinsed 3 times). Used the "stem" part as well as most of the "leaves" part.
Heat the oil/butter and saute the leeks for about 5 or 10 minutes till soft. At this point I had quite a bit of liquid, so I poured some off. So you can probably use less oil/butter or more leeks.
Poured 1 C of Heavy Whipping Cream on them and let them saute until the sauce thickened, about 15 minutes or so.
Seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
That's it! Easy, rich and a great taste. Definitely something I have to keep in mind as a standard.
