Recipes with leeks

Steamed leeks


  • Eight leeks (6 if very small)
  • 5 deciliters of water
  • 50 gr. butter
  • Salt

Start by cutting the top and bottom of the leeks. However, do not cut more of the top than necessary. Then make a small cut at the top so that you can wash the leeks thoroughly. Keep your leeks under running cold water and flush out any soil.
Cut the leeks into smaller pieces.
Put the water in a saucepan and add the butter and salt. Let the water boil, and put the leeks into the water and put the lid on.
Steam the leeks for 3-4 minutes – it depends on the size.
