Steamed Leeks Glazed With Crunchy Seeds

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 14 minutes

Serves: 4


4 medium leeks , trimmed, soaked, and rinsed thoroughly (see illustrations below)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
3 tablespoons unsalted butter


Arrange leeks in a single layer in a steamer basket or steamer insert. Carefully place basket over pot of vigorously boiling water; cover and steam until tip of knife inserted in thickest part of leek meets no resistance, about 10 minutes for leeks 3/4-inch thick, about 12 minutes for leeks 1 1/4-inch thick.

Meanwhile, mix vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, and sesame seeds together in small bowl; set aside. Heat butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. When steamed leeks are ready, transfer leeks and add spice mixture to large skillet. Cook, shaking skillet constantly and turning leeks to coat all sides, until mixture thickens to glaze, about 2 minutes.

Arrange leeks on individual plates or serving platter; pour remaining glaze over leeks and serve.

Serves 4
