Submitted by: JANETMS

Introduction

good side dish or veg option good side dish or veg option
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    * 2 medium leeks
    * 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
    * 1 Tbsp soya margarine
    * 1/2 Tbsp dark brown soft sugar
    * 5 ounces (150 g) noodles
    * 2 heaping Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    * 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
    * Salt and black pepper to taste


Directions

plit the leeks lengthways and wash each layer thoroughly. Slice across into thin strips, including the green part.

Heat the olive oil and margarine together over a gentle heat. When the margarine has melted, add the leeks and toss well. Cook slowly, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until the leeks start to soften.

Sprinkle over the sugar. After a couple more minutes, mix well. Continue to cook for 15 to 30 minutes, until the leeks have begun to collapse into a sticky mass. Add small amounts of hot water if required to stop sticking.

While the leeks are cooking, cook and drain the noodles.

When the leeks are done, add the parsley, olive oil, cooked noodles and seasoning to taste. Toss well and serve.

  • This is a delicious recipe. I used two 10 oz bags of frozen leeks and doubled the recipe otherwise. Then I put everything into my vitamix with some water and made a super cream sauce. - 1/4/11
