Savory Sautéed Leeks. A Super Simple Side Dish

veggieThis leek recipe is to die for! It's so simple and easy to make. If you bought leeks and have no idea what to do with them, this recipe is for you.Leeks have a mild, onion-like taste. They’re not quite as strong as an onion but have a nice bite to them. This leek recipe combines the mild flavor if leeks with the stronger flavor of white onions.

You Can Use Any Onion for This Leek Recipe

This leek recipe uses white onions but you can use red or Vidalia onions for a sweeter flavor. I just like the white onions here.
