Leek & Potato Sautee

This recipe is my own little variation, I got the idea from a leek & potato soup recipe we tried, and liked by the way.  But I was looking for a non-soup version so this recipe was born!  I never knew how much I liked leeks!  Mmmm… yum!  A leek is like a giant green onion/ scallion.  I’ve gotten some leeks that are really huge and they are absolutely beautiful.  Seriously, just so pretty!


2-3 potatoes, diced in small bite sized pieces

1/2 medium onion or 1 small onion, chopped

1 full leek, chopped all the way down to 1″ above the bottom

1 Tbsp Parsley

Coconut Oil


Sautee the diced potato pieces in coconut oil until potatoes are nearly “done.”  To prevent sticking, add coconut oil as needed and use low heat.  Add the chopped onion and leek and sautee all together until onions are translucent.  Add dried parsley.  Turn off heat.  Add 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil and plenty of sea salt to taste.  Enjoy!

Tip:  Keep a little crunch to the leeks, so don’t overcook them too much, makes a nice slight crunch to your soft potatoes!

Optional:  1-3 Chopped Garlic Cloves can be added when you add the onions and leek.
