Cook the leeks in 2 stagesClean and peel 500 g leeks. Instead of slicing straight across, cut them on the diagonal.
|2||Steam the leeks: the best way is to use a steamer basket so they sit just above the water, not in contact with it, and put the pan on high heat.|
|3||Cook uncovered and keep an eye on both their texture and colour - they should stay nice and green and still have a little "bite".
Please note that we don't salt them when steaming.
|4||Melt 30 g butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. When sizzling, add the leeks, salt and pepper and cook in this second stage for just 2 or 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Check the seasoning, then keep hot.
