I don’t really like Leeks but I love fondue de poireaux – Leek fondue. It is a French dish, usually eaten with bread. We can also add chicken or salmon.
I cooked this Fondue de poireaux -Leek fondue dish for my host family and they liked it. It’s a different and new flavor for American people because it is made with cream, which is very common in France but not in America.
Veryyyy easy to make.
It is so easy even a beginner can make it. It is funny because in France it is more a dinner dish that you would eat on a “Classic” day but my host mom told me that in America it is more of a dish that we make for Thanksgiving because it is very creamy and warm.
How to make a Leek Fondue?
To make a leek fondue, you need leek white up to the soft green part, the dark green part being more stringy, it will make your fondue less pleasant. Add to this some good quality cream and butter as well as a little dry white wine. For the recipe, it’s below.
1/2 crème fraîche or sour cream
1 green onions
1 tbsp butter
Salt & Pepper
1- Cut the green part of leeks into about 2 to 5mm slices
2- Chop the green onion
3- Place the butter and green onion in the pan. Cook it for about 5 minutes and add leek for about 10min on medium to high heat, until some bits are golden brown.
4- Add crème fraîche or sour cream, salt, and pepper. Keep on the heat for a few minutes until the mixture is heated through.
5- Stir everything
