Recipe by Don
"Greek-inspired, this is for leek and lemon lovers everywhere. A tasty, full-of-flavor side to accompany a myriad of main dishes. Complements fried and/or grilled fish to a 'T.' Can use some of the tender green parts if necessary."

My son gobbled it up! If a recipe can make a teen eat leeks, it's a keeper!
This was a very nice side dish. So simple and yet, lots of flavor. I will definitely be making this one again.
A favorite for me!
Lovely recipe. I had 4 smaller leeks and it came up 1lb. It was a little sour for me so I added just a touch of agave. My teenage boys even liked it. Thanks Don for another keeper!
Loved this simple recipe. It was hard to determine how many pounds of leeks to buy to get 2-lbs. of whites. I didn't buy enough, so I just made a half a batch. I really enjoyed the subtle taste of the fresh lemon in this recipe. Thanks, Don for sharing your recipe.
I really like leeks so I was prepared to like this dish, but Holy Cow! This is really, really good and so simple. Bueno! Mucho gracias, Don
We both really enjoyed this, very different in a good way. Thanks Don.
Lovely side dish, had this along side hamburger patties and sweet potatoe fries. Very easy to make and we liked it very much. Thank you Don for this very delightful recipe.
