Biblical Recipes-leeks With Olive Oil Vinegar Mustard SeedFrom mystic_river1 9 years ago
How to make it
- Thoroughly rinse the leeks under running water. Trim and cut them crosswise into 1/2 inch-thick slices. Bring a stockpot of water to a boil, add the leeks, and cook until very soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain, then place them in a serving dish and set aside.
- Using a mortar and pestle or an electric spice grinder, finely grind 1 teaspoon of the toasted mustard seeds. In a small howl, blend the vinegar and the ground mustard. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon this mixture over the leeks. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon whole mustard seeds, and serve at room temperature.

I love leeks and this sounds like a real "earthy" preparation and great for spring and summer. I like serving meals at room temperature during the warm months.vino4dino in Baltimore loved it

Yes! This is a great recipe, simple and tasty. I'm a huge fan of this type of cuisine, having lived in Egypt and Israel in my early 20s. I think I shall post some of my favorite traditional recipes as well.bradfordblanco in loved it
