Simmered Leeks
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
5 ingredients
2-4 servings
This is my favorite way to prepare leeks. You can eat it by itself or use as a topping for steak, chicken, or fish, and you can also add sliced mushrooms! Either way, it's a delicious addition to dinner. (The companion recipe to this one is Simmered Cabbage - or you can add cabbage to this recipe to combine them!)
