How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  4. In the milk mixture, add nutmeg and simmer for a few minutes. Before removing from the stove add mustard, stir well. Set aside.
  5. In a 12-inch nonstick frying pan set to medium, heat 4 TableSpoons of the olive oil. Add the leeks, a 1/4 teaSpoon of the pepper and a 1/4 teaSpoon of the Sea Salt with herbs.
