Champagne Grilled Leeks recipe


6 medium leaks.
2 cups of Champagne.
1 cup of fresh thyme, roughly chopped.
1 cup of crumbled feta cheese.
1 cup of chicken stock.
2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Salt and pepper, to taste.

Preparation Instructions:

Trim the tops and bottoms of the leeks, leaving about 2 inches of green above the white part of the leek.

From the center of the trimmed leek, make several lengthwise slices toward the green of the leek. Rinse leeks thoroughly.

In large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the thyme and stir for 1 minute.

Add the leeks and sauté for 3 minutes, until lightly golden on several sides.

Add the Champagne and chicken stock, then simmer for about 8 minutes or until the leeks until tender. Remove the leeks from the pan and set aside.

Continue to simmer the sauce remaining in pan until reduced by half.

Grill the leeks over a medium-hot charcoal fire for about 10 minutes, turning several times.

Remove the leeks from the grill and slice in half lengthwise.

Serve immediately, adding some feta cheese and some of the reduced sauce to each serving.

Season with salt and pepper.
