I get so many messages from friends and readers wanting to know what knives I use. When I finished culinary school many years ago, Funnyman bought me a Robert Welch Cook’s Knife and… I LOVE IT! I use a hundred times a day, I sharpen it with pride and it still lives in its protective box. No one is allowed to touch it, not even Funnyman (unless he wants me to use it on him). If you are looking to get a great knife set for your loved one, RW now have a set available – a perfect gift for the foodie in your life. To cut a long story short, I thought it would be a great time to showcase what knives I use, especially on this dreamy side dish which will sit perfectly on the side of your rib eye…

Instructions
  1. Trim the leeks, removing and discarding the end and any green parts (which are bitter). Rinse well and thinly slice. You should yield approximately 320g / 11oz sliced leeks.

  2. Heat the olive oil (or melt the lard) in a wide-bottomed pan and fry the minced garlic over low heat until softened. Do not allow them to burn. Add the leeks, increase the heat a little and cook until the leeks have softened and wilted, stirring continuously.
  3. Pour in the warm chicken stock and cover the pan with a lid. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, then remove the lid and simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes. All the stock should evaporate, so keep stirring to avoid the mixture catching.
  4. Stir in the sour cream and reduce the heat to avoid the cream splitting. Once it has warmed through, season with salt and white pepper and serve garnished with chopped parsley. (For a richer, cheesier version, stir through some finely grated Parmesan before serving.)
  5. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest). There is also a comment facility, so do let me know how you get on...
Recipe Notes

Since olive oil is somewhat unstable when heated, I do advise you select lard to fry food. It's inexpensive and can be found in the same aisle as butter.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 3.3g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
