  • 3 leeks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup water

  1. Halve leeks lengthwise (white and light-green parts only); separate layers and rinse well. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. Add leeks and water; season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Cover and cook at a medium simmer until leeks are very tender (adding more water if necessary), 14 to 16 minutes.
