3 leeks, washed, white and light-green parts only
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 cup salt-reduced vegetable stock

Instructions

Step 1: Remove tough outer leaves from leeks and discard. Cut each leek in 4 even-sized pieces. Place thyme and stock in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add leeks. Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes until almost tender.

Step 2: Uncover and simmer for 10 more minutes or until liquid has reduced. Use a slotted spoon to transfer leeks to a serving dish. Discard thyme. Whisk mustard with stock and drizzle over leeks. Serve sprinkled with chives.
