For a quick, cheap and simple dish why not try succulent braised leeks. Simply wash and trim approximately six large leeks. Next, take off the coarse outer leaves and chop off the bottom-most part of the stem.
3-4 Tablespoons of Butter
2 Tablespoons of Water
Salt & Pepper to taste
Now, cut your leeks into large uniform chunks and place in an oven dish with 3-4 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of water, and salt and pepper to taste. If you would like to add more leeks, simply increase the amount of butter you use.
Alternatively, if you would like to opt for a more waist-line friendly meal, you can use olive oil in combination with, or instead of butter.
Finally, place a lid on your oven dish and bake at 180 degrees for approximately 40 minutes, or until the leeks are soft and tender, and enjoy!
