I came up with this recipe during a recent gathering at our home, and I am very excited to share this with you. If you have been following my recipe, I try to stay away from packaged foods, but the Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix is one of my favorites that I have used. In this recipe, I sautéed leeks and onions in extra virgin olive oil, and added them to a few other ingredients, which created this delicious Sweet Leek Dip. It is paired very well with the King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread, that I cut up into smaller bite size pieces for spreading onto the bread at a gathering. Simply delicious. And just in case you are hesitant to try this recipe using leeks, here are three facts for you that may help you decide: they are high in Vitamin C, they protect against heart disease, and they are high in potassium. Here we go…..
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 leeks, rinsed, and sliced
1 medium onion, minced
2 cups sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 pack Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix
12 King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread Rolls, each bread cut into 3’s
non stick pan
On medium heat, saute’ leeks and onions in oil until soft. Remove from heat. In a mixing bowl, add your sour cream, mayonnaise, and Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix, and combine well. While your mixture is cooling in your pan, and your cold items are marinating, it is time to cut up your breads. Once that is complete, you can now mix your leek mixture with your mayonnaise mixture and blend well. Transfer to a serving dish, and cool in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Serve with sweet bread (you can also serve this dip with your choice of crackers or veggies). That’s it !!!! Enjoy !!!!
