Seasoned with salt and pepper, roasted spring leeks make for a satisfying side.
4 leeks, trimmed and sliced lengthwise
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup vegetable or chicken broth
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
2. In oiled roasting pan with sides, brush leeks with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast leeks until tender, about 35 to 45 minutes. While roasting, drizzle leeks with broth a few times to keep them moist.
3. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
