Creamy leeks


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp mince garlic
  • 300 g small leeks sliced
  • ½ juice of half a lemon
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 to 5 tbsp double cream
  • 2 to 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated
  • pinch salt and pepper


  • Melt the butter over medium heat add in the mince garlic and leeks. Give them a good stir till the leeks soften. Add in the chicken stock and lemon juice. Let everything simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes
  • Then add in the cream, season with salt and pepper. Finally sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.


Creamy leeks is a good side dish to accompany any protein. I love it especially with fish. You can of course add in a bit of spring onions for the extra 'onion' taste at the end.
