snacks and sides | 4 as a side

1. Heat a good drizzle of olive oil, with the butter if using, in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and fry for 1 minute, until golden. Stir in the leeks and thyme, then season and turn the heat down to low. Sauté for 15 minutes, stirring often, till the leeks turn sticky and soft without colouring. Use them as a side, or as a base for other recipes, such as this gnocchi with mustardy leeks and bacon.
