Caramelized Grilled Leeks

Terri Edwards shared this recipe on her site, “Eat Plant-Based”. For those who may be unfamiliar with leeks, this is an easy introduction to them.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4
3-4 whole Leeks
minced Garlic, fresh or from a jar
vegetarian “Oyster” Sauce, or Soy Sauce
Parsley flakes
Garlic powder
1/4 cup Water
1. Leeks look like giant green onions, and are from the onion family, but they don’t taste like them at all. Leeks have a wonderful sweet flavor.
2. The most important thing is to make sure to remove any sand or grit from between the layers. To do this, cut off the tops (hair-like end) and most of the tough green parts from the other end. Then slice them in half, from top to bottom.
3. Now, fan out the layers and rinse under running water to remove any dirt or grit.
4. These can be grilled or baked in oven. I like to place them on a hot grill to get the darkened grill marks before adding seasonings.
5. Place leeks in grill-proof pan. I line an aluminum disposable pan with parchment paper.
6. Season with garlic powder, minced garlic, parsley flakes, and vegetarian ‘oyster’ sauce or soy sauce. Add 1/4 cup water to maintain moisture.
7. Fold parchment paper over top.
8. Then cover with a sheet of foil. Toss on the grill and allow to cook at medium high heat approximately 30 minutes. If not cooked long enough, they will be chewy.
9. If baking in oven, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
10. Remove from grill and serve warm!
