Quick & Simple Recipe for Leeks in Creamy White Sauce

  • Trim the leeks & cut them halfway lenghtways, then into roughly 0.5cm thick slices
  • Place them in a bowl of cold water to allow any soil residue to wash away
  • Pick them out of the water without moving any soil residue that may be at the bottom of the bowl
  • Place them into a pan with a good dollop of butter
  • Turn the heat on high, add some salt & freshly-grated nutmeg
  • Place the lid on to allow the leeks to steam, lifting it off occasionally to stir the leeks & avoid them burning
  • After approx. 5 mins, they will be cooked but still have some crunch
  • In a shaker, mix some milk and plain flour, pour them into the leeks in the pan, stirring continuously as this will thicken almost instantly
  • Add some double cream if you want a really creamy dish!
  • Season to taste with additional salt & freshly-grated nutmeg, if required
  • Serve with your favourite meat!

Tip: for 6 people, use approximately 5-6 leeks with 200ml semi-skimmed milk and 1.5tbsp plain white flour, then add approx. 100ml double cream

Gloriously Simple, Gloriously Good!
