Ingredients

8 medium
leeks
1/2 c
butter plus more for serving
salt and pepper

Step-By-Step

1Thoroughly wash leeks. Trim to leave approximately as much green as there is white. Cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces.
2Place leeks and butter into a large saucepan. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until leeks are tender but not mushy.
3Drain and season to taste with salt and pepper. Melt a pat or two of additional butter over hot leeks, if desired.
