fantastic recipe. really delicious! i made some amendments only because i didn't have all the ingredients at hand: spring onion instead of shallot no parsley balsamic instead of wine vinegar definitely perks up the leeks, especially since steamed or boiled leeks sometimes seem a bit bland... tasty side dish and very easy! - 28 Sep 2011
