Print Chargrilled leeks

This would work either on a barbecue or a griddle pan. To vary this recipe, you could try adding lightly toasted pinenuts or using a sweet-sour dressing made with olive oil, balsamic or red wine vinegar and a little sugar. You could also sprinkle over some feta cheese.


  • 4 large (cut into manageable lengths) or 8 small leeks
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Par-boil the leeks until just tender. Drain and pat dry. Heat some olive oil in a griddle pan until fairly hot.
  2. Smear a little more olive oil over the leeks and chargrill until nicely marked.
  3. Remove from pan and dress with olive oil, lemon juice, seasoning and parsley. Eat hot or cold.
