Thinly sliced leeks became noodle-like when cooked. Dressed with fine hazelnut oil and créme Fraîche, they make a luxurious side dish, like creamy noodles with leek and hazelnut overtones.
The leeks take very little time to cut into "noodles" and just a few minutes to cook. You can do both steps ahead, and reheat at the last minute with créme Fraîche and the nut oil, making this great for dinner parties.
