  • 12 leeks
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups beef stock, or 2 bouillon cubes and water
  • salt and pepper
  • dried thyme


Wash the leeks thoroughly, trim off the roots and most of the tops (which can be saved for soup), and cook them with the other ingredients in a large frying pan, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes. Leeks make a good first course served hot on buttered toast, or chilled and served with French Dressing. Garnish them with chives if you wish.
