Author Notes: This is a Turkish dish called "Zeytinyagli pirasa" which means "leeks with olive oil". I used to hate this dish and any leek dish when I was younger, but for some reason I now love leeks and this dish. It is even better in UK as the leeks here are much smaller and tastier than their Turkish cousins.
It is a simple dish that is best eaten at room temprature and makes a great packed lunch.
To add more lemon kick, add zest of the lemon to the dish. —[email protected]
