Braised Leeks with Dill

Recommended Posts

I got this in email today and thought it looked great!



Source: email newsletter


8 medium leeks

2 medium onions

1 clove garlic

1 large tomato

2 tsp olive oil (I'd use more broth or water, not oil)

1/2 cup vegetable or nonfat, low sodium chicken broth

Salt and pepper to taste

4 sprigs fresh dill, chopped


Rinse leeks under cool running water. Halve them

lengthwise, peeling off the tough outer layer and

including about 2 inches of the green tops. Rinse them again. Slice onions, chop garlic, and peel, seed and chop tomato.


In a skillet, saute onions and garlic in olive oil (or broth or water) 2 minutes. Put onions, garlic, leeks, tomato and stock into slow-cooker; cover and cook on low 6 to 10 hours. Salt and pepper to taste at end of cooking.


Garnish with chopped dill at serving time. Serves 6.
