  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 6 -8 leeks
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche (make your own from the many recipes here on zaar)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp tabasco sauce (or to taste)


  1. Clean the leeks using your tried & true method or trim off the root end and about 1/4 inch of the white base. Remove any ragged, coarse outer leaves and discard. Trim each of the darkest portion of the leaves down to the light green, more tender portion, leaving about 2 inches of green. Slice the leeks down the center and rinse under cold running water to remove all dirt and sand, being careful to get in between the leaves. Drain on paper towels and proceed with recipe.
  2. Cut leeks in half lengthwise then cut into thin half moon slices. Place in a colander & rinse again. (leeks seem to be sand magnets).
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan or large frying pan. Add leeks, wine, salt & garlic. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Add chicken stock & continue cooking until leeks are soft, another 10-15 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat & stir in the creme fraiche, parsley, lemon juice & Tabasco.
