Leeks are related to garlic and onions, but they have a milder flavor. When combined with basmati rice, they make an interesting, versatile side dish for seafood, veal or chicken.
You could saute the leeks in a lot of oil, but I used a small amount along with nonstick cooking spray to reduce the fat. With this method, cover the leeks as they cook and stir occasionally so they won’t burn.
Use vegetable broth to make this vegetarian.
