Ingredients

  • 1

    large or 2 small leeks

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 1/2

    tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1

    teaspoon Splenda

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Trim off and discard the root end and upper, dark green leaves. Thinly slice the leek and separate into rings. Place in a bowl of cold water. Stir vigorously to remove dirt between layers. Remove the leek from the water and pat dry with paper towels. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the leeks and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add the lemon juice and Splenda and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, 1 minute or until the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper.
