Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 2 tbsps Butter
  • 8 Small leeks, trimmed and washed
  • 1 Clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup Il Brigante
  • 1 tsp Red wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsps Parsley, chopped
  • Dash of salt
  • Black pepper to taste

Leeks are sautéed in a wine and wine vinegar sauce flavored with garlic. The leeks become sweet and caramelized. This is a fast and easy side dish that is absolutely delicious. It is equally delicious using sweet onions instead of leeks.

Melt the butter and cook the leeks and garlic for 3 minutes over medium heat.

Add the red wine and some salt and mix well. Cover and cook for 15 more minutes or until leeks are tender.

Place the leeks on a serving dish and reduce the liquid left in the pan for 2 minutes.

Add the wine vinegar and pepper to taste. Pour over the leeks and garnish with parsley.
