Greek-Style Mushrooms and Leeks (Recipe)


✅ 6 scallions, trimmed, white and green parts thinly sliced crosswise

✅ 1 pound white mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and sliced

✅ 1 pound leeks, cleaned, the white and pale green part sliced crosswise

✅ 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 cup grated or crushed tomatoes

✅ 1 tablespoon tomato paste
✅ Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground black pepper

✅ 2 tablespoons chopped at-leaf parsley


1️⃣ In a large pot add the olive oil and sauté the scallions at medium to low heat for about 2 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the mushrooms and leeks and a bit of salt, and continue sautéing for another 3 to 4 minutes.

3️⃣ Add the tomato and the tomato paste and stir, and then add just enough hot water to partially cover the vegetables.

4️⃣ Cover the pot and simmer (it should not be boiling) for about 30 to 35 minutes. It should not be watery. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. Sprinkle with parsley and freshly ground black pepper.
