Leeks with Dijon Vinaigrette image

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Categories     side-dish

Time 20m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

6 medium leeks, dark green tops trimmed
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon water
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional for salting water
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves, optional


  • Game Plan: Make the vinaigrette while the leeks cook.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat, then salt it generously. Trim the root end of the leeks, leaving enough to hold the leaves together, and halve lengthwise. Rinse very well under running water to flush out any grit trapped between the leaves. Add the leeks to the boiling water and cook until tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer the leeks to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pat dry and lay them on a serving platter.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the vinegar, mustard, water, and the 3/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing. Drizzle the vinaigrette evenly over leeks, turn them to coat, and scatter the parsley and the tarragon, if using, over the top. Serve immediately or up to 2 hours later at room temperature.

Yield Makes 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

6 medium leeks (about 2 1/2 pounds)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup low-salt chicken stock
5 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, divided
1 tablespoon coarse-grained Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 hard-boiled eggs, whites and yolks separated and chopped


  • Heat oven to 425°F. Trim dark-green tops from leeks, leaving root end intact. Remove tough outer layer. Starting 1" above root end, halve leeks lengthwise. Wash leeks, making sure to clean all sand from between layers. Dry slightly on paper towels.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil and butter in a large, deep ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add leeks, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning occasionally, until light golden in spots, about 5 minutes. Add wine and cook until almost all liquid is absorbed, 3-4 minutes. Add 1 cup water, chicken stock, thyme, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until leeks are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk 1 tablespoon parsley, Dijon mustard, vinegar, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a small bowl. Season vinaigrette to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer leeks to a platter, drizzle with vinaigrette, top with eggs, and garnish with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley.


Classic Leeks Vinaigrette image

For leeks vinaigrette, look for smallish leeks, which are more tender and more closely resemble asparagus spears, for the French call this dish "asperges du pauvre," the poor man's asparagus. This is important; a crunchy leek is unpleasant. Drain the leeks and hold at room temperature for up to several hours, but do not refrigerate or they'll lose their delicate texture. To serve, simply smear the leeks with vinaigrette; I make a thick, sharp rather mustardy one to complement the sweetness of the leeks. Then garnish as you wish. I like capers, hard-cooked egg, olives and cornichons.

Time 30m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

8 small leeks, about 1 pound
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons capers
8 to 12 cornichons
12 olives, such as niçoise, oil-cured black or green picholine
2 hard-cooked eggs, halved lengthwise


  • Trim leeks, removing tough outer layers and cutting off root ends. Leave a little green at the top. Make a lengthwise slit part way down each leek. Put leeks in a large basin of warm tap water and swish vigorously to dislodge any sand or dirt. Remove carefully, leaving grit in basin.
  • Fill a medium sauce pot with water and bring to a boil. Add a generous pinch of salt and put in leeks. Cook at a brisk simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, until leeks are quite tender when pierced with a paring knife. Drain and cool to room temperature.
  • Make vinaigrette: put mustard and vinegar in a bowl and stir to dissolve. Whisk in olive oil to make a thick sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Blot leeks and divide among 4 plates. Spoon vinaigrette over leeks, smearing with back of spoon. Sprinkle with capers. Garnish each plate with cornichons, olives and half an egg.
