Leeks are one of my favorite vegetables! There are about 11.5g net carbs in a cup of sliced leeks (approx 90g) – which makes them low-middle on the veggie-carb scale. I love serving them steamed with some low carb white sauce, and they are wonderful roasted, too. This recipe pairs the mild onion flavor with earthy thyme and rich blue cheese and cream. It is quite a combination!

How to Make Leeks with Blue Cheese Sauce

Remove the outer leaves from the leeks and trim the coarse leaves and root. Rinse well to remove any residual dirt, then cut into slices.

Melt some butter in a pan, then add olive oil, the sliced leeks and some dried thyme. Saute gently until the leeks have started to soften. Add in some heavy cream and let it bubble for a minute or two. The sauce will start to thicken. Add some blue cheese crumbles.Leeks with Blue Cheese Sauce - a creamy low carb and LCHF side dish recipe
