Preparation

Step 1

    Wash the leeks and cut them down to 2 inches below where the green leaves separate from the whole stem. Slice the lower stems and bulbs lengthwise in half, then crosswise about ¼-inch thick. Rinse thoroughly and drain. 


Step 2

    Melt butter in a heavy soup pot and saute the leeks gently, uncovered, for about 15 minutes. Don’t let them brown. Add another tablespoon of butter if needed.


Step 3

    Add flour to soup pot and stir well with leeks. Cook at very low heat for 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

Note - CAUTION the heated mixture with steam and cooking pans will be super HOT, please take care.
