Expert Tips

The leek, a mild member of the onion family, resembles a fat, over-grown scallion. Since it tends to hold a lot of dirt within the leaves, wash it thoroughly: Trim off the root end, then cut the leek in half lenghtwise and rinse completely, separating the layers to make sure all the grit is removed.

To lower the fat in this recipe a little bit, choose dry sun-dried tomatoes instead of the oil-packed variety. To reconstitute the dried tomatoes, place them in a glass measuring cup or bowl and add hot water to cover. Microwave on HIGH for a minute, then let them stand for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Squeeze out most ot the liquid, chop the tomatoes and add as directed.
