Braised Leeks & Broccoli Greens


4 leeks, sliced lengthwise
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bunch broccoli green, stemmed and chopped
2 tablespoon vegetable broth
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese


  1. Trim leeks so that 1 1/2 inches of green leaves remain.
  2. Chop leeks into 1 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  4. Stir the leeks until they begin to separate and soften, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in broccoli greens, and pour in enough broth to just cover the bottom of the pan to prevent leeks from browning.
  6. Cook the leeks and greens until the greens turn bright green and start to soften, another 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Season to taste with salt and black pepper, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
