This bright and flavorful Braised Leeks and Spinach recipe is a deliciously light tasting and easy to prepare side dish. The leeks are braised in savory broth that gives them a slightly sweet, delicate flavor that compliments the spinach. Crumbled feta cheese and lemon zest round out the flavor.
Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the leeks and cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the broth and heat to a boil. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until leeks are tender and some of the broth has evaporated. Add the spinach in 2 batches and stir until wilted. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the feta cheese and top with grated lemon zest.
