When you're looking for a vegetarian side dish that's simple and flavorful, these buttered leeks are just what you need. Bite-size pieces of leeks are sautéed in butter and salt until they're completely softened. The trick in this recipe is to cook the leeks on low heat, which helps draw out the vegetable's natural sweetness.
You can customize the recipe below according to your tastes, adding such things as vinegar or chili powder. The simplicity of the salted butter contrasts perfectly with the mild sweet onion flavor of the leek, creating a dish that's almost creamy in texture. This is an exceptional new recipe to try out for any family dinner or even to impress on a romantic night in.
