These are so good! They taste as delicious as onion rings, but they're much healthier. Enjoy! These are so good! They taste as delicious as onion rings, but they're much healthier. Enjoy!
Number of Servings: 8


    8 leeks, 1-inch diameter (about 1 1/2 pounds)
    2 T olive oil
    salt to taste


Clean the leeks thoroughly and slice them paper thin, either in rounds or half-rounds. Dry on paper towels, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking tray with foil, and place a double thickness of paper towels on a dinner plate.

Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat for 30 seconds or so. Add the leeks to the hot oil, and saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently with a long-handled fork or with chop-sticks.

Transfer the leeks to the foil-lined baking tray, and bake for 15 minutes, stirring them about every 5 minutes. (They can easily burn if you get distracted and forget to watch them closely. So don't answer the phone until they're done.)

Transfer the leeks to the paper towel-lined plate, and spread them out in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with salt, and let cool for about 15 minutes.

Store in a tightly covered container, and use as desired.

Yield: 2 cups
Preparation time: 25 minutes (10 minutes of your full attention, plus 15 minutes of intermittent stirring)

Number of Servings: 8
