This is an excellent prepartion for one of my favorite "veggies". Next time I will cut back on the cream and parmesan since it was a little too rich for my taste. Better yet, I'll had more leeks and have MORE! Well Done Jan S!

A truly fabulous leeks recipe and, once you've thoroughly washed your leeks, so easy to prepare! I added one brown onion and 3 cloves of garlic - both chopped - to the leeks, as we love the flavour of the three together. When I checked on the liquid after about 10 minutes, it needed just a tiny bit more so I added about half a tablespoon of white wine. The cooking aromas were already divine but after that tiny bit of wine, we could hardly wait till the leeks were ready to eat! I used sour cream. We immensely enjoyed these leeks as a main course over steamed rice, and I'm SO looking forward to making them again soon. Made for the Aussie Forum's MAKE MY RECIPE. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Jan!

What an easy and delicious way to prepare leeks! I simmered them in quite a bit of water as I usually do, then drained them. I followed Jen T's suggestion and used sour cream (reduced fat version). I used just enough to coat the leeks nicely, then sprinkled on parmesan cheese. This is so much easier than making a cheese sauce to go with leeks, and healthier, I think. I will definitely make leeks this way again!

I used a whole "bunch" of leeks for this (about 5 slender leeks) and used nearly all of each (I discarded only the well-separated leaves). The sauce was just the perfect amount. I though they were just delicious, but discovered that my family really doesn't like leeks! I ate the whole batch myself. ;)

These were okay. I had to drain water out of the pan, otherwise the sauce would've been non-existent. I did end up adding a good amount of salt and a healthy splash of hot sauce, as the dish was a bit bland. Serving this on rice really helped. I love onion, but this was really like a big bowl of onion. Glad I tried it, but probably won't make it again.

I used 1/2 cup of sour cream as Jen T suggested. THANKS! It was fantastic, the flavors came together perfectly. I also doubled the amount of leeks and kept all the other measurements the same.

Hi Jan, I didn't have any cream on hand so used sour cream and it was great. The flavours blended really well. I will certainly be using this recipe a lot. Thanks for posting, Cheers JenT :)

Excellent! Wasn't sure about the cooking method but IT DOES WORK! I used as a sauce on pastas.

Leeks are fantastic and so underrated! I love recipes like this where the leeks are the main event. I made this just as written, just didn't cook them quite as long as written. This was so quick and easy to make and it makes a nice side dish when you need something a little different. Thanx for sharing!
