Leeks with Olives

Contributed by: Salt-N-Peppers Plus of Salt-N-Peppers Plus

Great to serve hot or cold, goes well with Middle Eastern dishes.


  • 3-4 leeks
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 2 medium onions
  • 10-20 calamata olives (black olives, unpitted)
  • Italian seasoning
    2 tsp Italian seasoning (or a mix of dried thyme, basil, oregano, rosemary, sage)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp cooking wine (optional)


Clean leeks well (lots of dirt clings between the leaves especially in the white part, so chop them into 1-2 " bits and open each to clean well), bring them to a boil in water.

At the same time put chopped onions and garlic in oil and about 1/3 cup water to boil until onions soft enough.

Drain leeks and add to onions, also add olives (you may pit them if you wish), herbs.

When almost done (leeks soft) add cooking wine and tomato paste.
