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.

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.
