Turkish Braised Leeks with Olives

65 mins (prep 15, cooking 50)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
Really yummy! I love leeks and was happy to find a recipe such as this, that uses them as a main ingredient. I made this as written, but didn't cook them as long as listed (I didn't want them too limp and overcooked). I probably cut the cook time in half. Don't skip the lemon juice at the end...it's great. Thanx!
