Started cooking the leeks, then went in search of ideas, so I started with 1 T butter, not oil. I also probably left more of the green on than indicated. I had 3 leeks and ate the entire amount! Great way to serve an out of the ordinary vegetable and nice enough for company. Thanks for the idea! - 5/30/10
