To prepare leeks, trim off the root and about 1/4 inch of the white base. Remove any ragged, course outer leaves and discard. Trim each of the darkest portion of the leaves down to the lighter green, more tender portion, leaving about 2 inches of green. The dark green trimmed leaves can be reserved for other uses.
This recipe is great for a quick weeknight dinner.
