"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."

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!

My son gobbled it up! If a recipe can make a teen eat leeks, it's a keeper!

A favorite for me!

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 tas...

I really didn't think this would be so tasty. I was very surprised that it was so good! We ate it with teriyaki chicken and rice. Will make this again for sure!

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

Such a simple dish, and absolutely delicious. Perfect for entertaining. Thank you.

I loved it.
