Love frizzled leeks - well frizzled anything, sage, basil, etc.

Got the mail yesterday and the magazine was in it, so I'll spend today looking for goodies.

This one looks good.

I'm assuming we only need 6 c of leeks, not 12, correct? This looks good, thanks for posting it!

I was confused about the amount of leeks as well, but yes it is six. I noticed it when I transferred the recipe to my LC. I copied it straight out of the digital version. Not sure why they put the leeks twice.

I made it for lunch yesterday and it was really good. I halved the recipe since it was just the two of us. One suggestion though, use a flavored rice, like pineapple, regular white rice was bland. I didn't cut the leek for the frizzled leeks into even matchsticks, so they cooked uneven, but they were still delicious.

Beautiful Blane, this is one I plan on making as well. Thanks for the tip on the white rice. We had some supposedly fried rice leftover from lunch out and it was super bland. We brought the leftovers home and I added sprinkles of garlic, turmeric and ginger before reheating in the microwave and it was a huge improvement. So, I was thinking maybe of doing a fake Cuban style yellow rice.
