Oven Roasted Leeks With Herbs de Provence

6 medium leeks, cleaned and cut lengthwise into quarters
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. Herbs de Provence
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
2/3 cup of vegetable stock

You will need a baking sheet covered in parchment.

Pre-heat oven 400°F.

To Clean Leeks
Remove the coarse outer leaves. Trim each leek like you would a scallion- chopping off the root end, and then taking off the darkest portion of the leaves down to the light green; leaving about 2 inches of green. Slice the leeks down the center, rinse under cold water to remove all bits of dirt/sand, slightly bending the leeks around to remove the debris. Drain on paper towels and proceed with recipe.

Take the clean leeks, in a bowl, and toss with the oil, herbs, salt and pepper. Then add to baking sheet.

Roast the leeks until they are tender, about 35-45 minutes. Around the 20 minute mark add in a few splashes of the stock, and then repeat at the next interval of 20 minutes. Once they are tender and have caramelized marks they are cooked.
