Leeks in Red Wine

This makes a great first course for 6 or a light meal for 4.

You can eat it hot or cold but my favourite is the way my wife Sally serves it – just a bit warmer than room temperature. All the protection of leeks and the heart benefits of red wine – what more could you want?!

8 smallish leeks, well washed and cut diagonally into 1 inch chunks
2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed, not chopped
125 ml / 4 fl oz red wine
2 tbsp olive oil
a small knob of butter
a handful of finely chopped flat leaf parsley

Heat the oil and butter in a large pan, add garlic and leeks.

Cook gently until the leeks begin to soften.

Add the wine, cover and simmer gently till cooked through.

Remove leeks with a slotted spoon, pile into serving bowls.

Ladle cooking juices onto each portion and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
