If you're cooking just for yourself, your one leek would be enough to make this treat: http://food52.com/recipes...
There's also a salad somewhere on this site with braised leeks and sliced oranges that is delicious. Just try the "Search" box, upper right of the screen.

I can vouch for the braised leeks with panko. So yummy! You can also saute it with white beans and sage for a hearty but simple side dish.

I recently had a restaurant salad with greens, steak and goat cheese topped with crispy fried (but not battered) leek strips. Delicious, subtle flavor and crisp texture.

One large leek should be enough for Jean-Georges' Ginger Fried Rice. http://food52.com/recipes...

I made a delicious risotto w leeks and roasted beets. The leek tops are vut into narrow strips and fried in olive oil on medium high heat til brown and sl crispy at the edges. The leek bottom is sautéed until soft. All the veg are stirred in at the end along w some goat cheese and chives. It's So good! A lot of trouble but worth it. I was so happy to use the entire leek.

The saumon aux lentilles from Gourmet, March 2008 (recipe available online) will make your heart sing. I find it brings out the best in a leek, and is delightful the next day, cold.

Just want to add that a leek is like an herbaceous onion, and can be sweated or sautéed in oil to put a greener spin on an already familiar recipe that does not rely on the onion disappearing into the recipe.

you can caramelize thinly sliced leeks and use them a sa filling for lasagna, alternating with bacon, ricotta, grated comte, chopped toasted walnuts........
