Prepare 500 g leek, keeping only the stem part, and slice into chunks on the diagonal (French chefs call this "en sifflet").

Keep the leek trimmings for a leek and potato soup.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Cook the leeks in boiling salted water until just tender, but no more. As soon as they are cooked (try one to check), drain them to keep their lovely green colour.

Stage 4 - 2 min.

The leeks need to be drained thoroughy and the best way to do this is in a salad spinner.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

Stage 6

Remarks
Thie best leeks for this recipe are the long, thin ones, as they are easier to slice into chunks.

You can steam the leeks, if you prefer, and they will need very little draining.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately.

How to prevent butter burning during cooking
Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).
