ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Leeks with Raisins are a sweet and savory way to serve leeks.
Makes 2 servings
4 leeks, white and light green parts, cleaned thoroughly and thinly sliced (see note)
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup vegetable broth, plus more as needed
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Put the leeks, raisins, vegetable broth, and olive oil (if using) in a medium skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding more broth as needed if the leeks become dry. Cook until the leeks are soft and the liquid is mostly absorbed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
