In less than 15 minutes you will have a different and delicious side dish ready. We are talking about pan-fried leeks.
Thinking of leeks as a real side dish perhaps requires a minimum of imagination effort and yet it is enough to cook simple leeks in a pan to realize that, until now, you have underestimated its potential. Whether it's its simplest version, stewed in a pan , or one of the richest that we will present to you, rest assured that you will be pleasantly impressed.
Pan-fried leeks are a simple and delicious side dish that goes well with both meat and fish dishes. If you have any leftovers, you can also use them to season pasta or prepare a delicious savory pie. In short, there is no excuse not to prepare them.
How to prepare the leek recipe in the pan
- First remove the final beard of the leeks and the outermost layer. Then cut them into slices about half a centimeter thick so as to obtain washers. Alternatively, first divide them in half lengthwise.
- In a pan, heat the oil (or butter) with the garlic clove, then add the leeks. Cook for a couple of minutes then put the lid on and simmer until tender, remembering to add salt.
- The leeks in a pan are ready to be enjoyed after about 10 minutes of cooking.
We love preparing leeks in a pan with olives and capers to make them tastier. In this case, immediately after having browned them in the sauce, add 1 tablespoon of black or Taggiasca olives cut into slices and 1 teaspoon of desalted capers . The rest of the procedure remains unchanged.
Do you love strong flavours? Pan-fried leeks with speck are the recipe for you.
Stewed leeks can be kept for a couple of days in the refrigerator . Before consuming them, heat them in a pan.
