Ingredients
  

  • 1 kg Leeks about 5 medium, white and light-green parts only, halved lengthwise
  • 1 tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 75 ml Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Dry white wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Position a rack in the centre of the oven and heat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  • Arrange the leek halves cut side down in a snug single layer in a shallow 8-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle the herbs over the leeks. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, wine, and 1 tbsp water and drizzle over the leeks. Sprinkle evenly with the salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Braise the leeks in the oven until tender and easy to pierce with a fork, about 40 minutes. The leeks should be nicely caramelized.
