View Full Version : Leek Recipes
would love any of your recipes with Leek in it:yes:
Love Leek esecailly sauteed!!!
I did a chicken and leek lasagne last week - cooked up chicken and leek with a tomato based sauce for the meat layer, then used ricotta and spinach for the cheesy layer. It was kind of a combination of 2 recipes, but it turned out really yummy.
My husband does a chicken in brandy cream sauce (it was the first meal he cooked for me when we started going out - hence why I stuck around :laughing: ). The sauce has 2 leeks cooked till they are tender, then add 1/3 cup brandy or cognac and cook till reduced by half. Add 2/3 cup cream and cook till sauce thickens. Serve over cooked chicken breast with cooked flaked almonds over the top. VERY easy and VERY yum - won my heart!
Hope you find them as yummy as we did!
Here is a really simple one:

I make chicken mushroom and leek pies and they're delicious. I don't use a recipe, just make it up so I don't know quantities.
Make the filling:
Cook chopped leeks & mushies, put aside. Brown finely diced chicken, add vegies back. Add white wine, cream, cheese or whatever else you like to make a sauce.
Put puff pastry into pie trays. Let the mix cool a bit and spoon into little pie trays. Top with pastry and cook until they look and smell fabulous.
