Equipment

  • Rimmed baking sheet or large skillet or pan

Ingredients

  • 6-8 medium leeks roots trimmed, dark green leaves discarded, halved and cleaned, see below
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Cut and clean leeks. Trim and cut 6-8 medium leeks, then wash and dry well to remove any dirt or grit.
  • Roast the leeks. Preheat an oven to 425 F. Place the cleaned, trimmed leeks cut side down on a baking sheet or large pan that's been drizzled with 2 Tbsp olive oil. Drizzle with an additional 1 Tbsp olive oil (trust us, they need it to prevent them from burning), then sprinkle with ½ teaspoon Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Roast for 20 minutes, or until the bottoms of the leeks are tender on the inside, and crispy.
