Ingredients
  • 2large leeks
  • 1TB olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 300g warm chicken stock
  • 70g sour cream
  • salt and white pepper
  • chopped parsleyto garnish
Instructions
  1. Trim the leeks, removing and discarding the end and any green parts (which are bitter). Rinse well and thinly slice. You should yield approximately 320g / 11oz sliced leeks.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a wide-bottomed pan and fry the garlic over moderate heat until softened. Do not allow them to burn. Add the leeks and cook until the leeks have softened and wilted, stirring continuously.
  3. Pour in the warm chicken stock and cover the pan with a lid. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, then remove the lid and simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes. All the stock should evaporate, so keep stirring to avoid the mixture catching.
  4. Stir in the sour cream and reduce the heat to avoid the cream splitting. Once it has warmed through, season with salt and white pepper and serve garnished with chopped parsley.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it’s 3.3g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) – and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
