  • 1 whole leek
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 garlic clove minced (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. 
  • Trim the top couple inches off the leeks and about an inch at the bottom. Slice the leeks in half, long ways.
  • Rinse them very well in cold water. 
  • Place leeks on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil, salt and garlic.  
  • Roast for 10-15 minutes, until ends start to brown and leeks can be easily pierced with a knife.


  1. Wash them thoroughly before using them - leeks can be very dirty.
  2. Larger leeks will need to roast longer - once a knife can be inserted easily into the thickest part of the leeks, they are done. 
  3. The garlic is optional - I like the extra flavor it adds, but you can leave it out if you prefer.
  4. Leeks can be reheated in the microwave. They are great leftover!
