So I have been wanting to cook with leeks lately. I like expanding my knowledge and cooking repertoire. A few years ago, it was re-discovering fresh beets. I never liked the canned ones as a kid and thought I wouldn’t like them fresh. Boy was I wrong. Next it was brussel sprouts. They get a bad wrap and now they are one of my favorite veggies. I had always wanted to try using leeks and finally bought some. I consulted pinterest and found a simple recipe with mushrooms and leeks. It’s from Martha Stewart. Link, here. Rather than using a wok, I just used a saute pan and instead of tossing the veggies with the oil, I just put the oil directly in the pan, then the veggies and then seasoned them.
2 leeks, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 1/2 pounds button mushrooms (I used cremini), cut in half or quarter.
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese (I didn’t use the cheese and loved them without it.)
