Greek-Style Rice with Leeks

Prasorizo, which translates from the Greek as “leek rice,” is a homey dish of rice cooked with earthy-sweet leeks. For our take, we use Italian Arborio rice and cook the grains as if making risotto, resulting in a rich, creamy consistency that’s a nice match for the tender, silky leeks. As a final flourish and to add some brightness, we garnish the rice with fresh tomato and herb(s), drizzle it with olive oil and serve it with lemon wedges. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the leeks after slicing them in order to wash away the grit trapped in the many layers, then drain well to remove excess moisture. This makes a delicious light main course, or serve it as a side to almost any sort of chicken, pork or seafood.

Tip

Don’t forget to cover the leeks and stir them as they cook. While it takes several minutes for the leeks to begin to break down and soften, if left too long undisturbed while covered, they’ll brown very quickly and burn.
