Leek Broth Recipe-9281

Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


Leek greens need not be discarded; they make an excellent broth.


  • Greens from 4 pounds of leeks
  • 6 cups broth or water


When washed, cut into 2-inch pieces and put in a stockpot. Add liquid. Bring to a boil. Cover; reduce the heat and simmer for 3 hours. Strain.
