Leeks Braised in Red Wine, p. 311

I had never had leeks, or at least I don't think I've ever had leeks before. You never can tell when you eat out sometimes. Anyways, I read an article not too long ago, so I was anxious to try them. I was out shopping at Easy Way last week and they had some. I hadn't noticed them at my Shady Schnuck's before, so I went ahead and purchased them.

Two leeks chopped up looked like quite a bit.

But they cooked down and took on the color and flavor of the wine.

I have to say, I loved them. They were very similar to sauteed onions, which is why Bryan took one bite and offered me the rest of his. Oh well. He loved the pasta carbonara, which will be coming up next.
