'leeks' on Serious Eats

Arugula, Salmon, and Leek Tart

We're starting to get into the season of fantastic greens, and this recipe calls for one of my favorites. Arugula (also known as rocket) is prepared in two ways—chopped and quickly cooked with leeks for the tart filling, as well as lightly dressed and served on top, adding its characteristic bright, bitter flavor to an otherwise rich, creamy dish.

Speckled Salad with Quinoa, Leek, Bacon, & Chervil from 'Home Made Winter'

Salads are a staple of many a resolution-conscious eater come January. And while eating more vegetables is always a healthy choice, meal after meal of barely-dressed plates of carrots and mixed greens will get old quickly. Yvette van Boven's Speckled Salad with Quinoa, Leek, Bacon, and Chervil in her new Home Made Winter hits many health points (Vegetables! Whole grains! Spinach!) while still including enough pleasurable bits (Bacon! Wine! Bacon!) to prevent boredom. More

Serious Entertaining: Early Spring Dinner

Spring is one of the easiest times of the year for entertaining. Its flavors are so bright and fresh after the root vegetable-based fare of winter that really, all you need to do is find a good source of vegetables (like a farmer's market) and treat the vegetables as simply as possible. Roast chicken is the centerpiece of this dinner, and it gets roasted with asparagus and spring leeks. A simple salad and a five-minute-start-to-finish dessert seal the deal. More

Easy Roast Chicken with Asparagus and Leeks

One of the great things about spring is that it provides you with a plethora of vegetables that need only brief cooking stints to become delicious. This makes them the perfect companion for a roast chicken dinner. Simply roast your chicken, have your vegetable prepped, then cook them while the chicken rests. All of your food comes out piping hot at the exact same time. More

French in a Flash: Creamed Leeks

The dish is simple: Sliced leeks are sautéed down in a little bit of butter until they're soft and sweet. Then I add cream and a dash of Parmesan (my addition to tradition). The cream binds the leeks together and has that same savory-sweetness of the leeks themselves, while the Parmesan adds a punch of salt to wake it all up. More

Sunday Supper: Fish and Mussel Stew with Green Olives

This stew has many of the same ingredients of a bouillabaisse, but comes together with a few simple steps. Adding the fish in two stages allows the first addition to break down and fortify the tomato broth, and the second to add some meaty substance to the final product. This stew is great with a simple loaf of Italian bread, but would go very well with some thick pasta (like pappardelle) and a big green salad. More

Cook the Book: Chicken and Leek Pasties

Taking a cue from Cornish pasties (know in West Cornish dialect as tiddy oggy (!), these are little moon-shaped handheld pastries filled with savory ingredients. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall offers up three filling variations in River Cottage Every Day—leftover stew, lentil and squash, and chicken and leek. More

Chinese Appetizer Recipe Week: Fried Dumplings

Of all the foods off the A1 through A24 section of your local Chinese takeout menu, fried dumplings (that's Peking ravioli to you Bostonians) are perhaps the ones that benefit most from some home treatment. Unless you're really lucky, takeout dumplings are thick-skinned and greasy, any crunch having left them in the long steamy bike ride from the kitchen to your door. More
