Expert Tips

  • The leek, a mild member of the onion family, resembles a fat, over-grown scallion. Since it tends to hold a lot of dirt within the leaves, wash it thoroughly: Trim off the root end, then cut the leek in half lenghtwise and rinse completely, separating the layers to make sure all the grit is removed.
  • To lower the fat in this recipe a little bit, choose dry sun-dried tomatoes instead of the oil-packed variety. To reconstitute the dried tomatoes, place them in a glass measuring cup or bowl and add hot water to cover. Microwave on HIGH for a minute, then let them stand for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Squeeze out most ot the liquid, chop the tomatoes and add as directed.
