Sauteed Green Apples and Leeks

To clean leeks thoroughly, soak them in cold water for five to 10 minutes, then lift them out of the water, leaving the dirt behind.

Sauteed Green Apples and Leeks

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February/March 1993


  • 2 large leeks, white part only
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large green apples, such as Granny Smith, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced


  1. Split leeks in half lengthwise, and trim the bottoms, leaving a little of the root end intact so they stay together. Wash well, and dry. Cut leeks into thin strips about 2 inches long.

  2. In a medium saute pan over medium heat, melt 1 teaspoon butter. Add leeks, and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan, and set aside.

  3. Melt remaining teaspoon butter, and add apple slices. Turn heat to high, and cook until apples are lightly browned and soft, about 3 minutes. Return leeks to pan, and toss together to combine. Serve immediately.
