Preparation

  • In a suitable bowl, mix the herbs, the shallot and just enough oil to saturate the herbs. Add the lemon juice, salt and set aside.
  • Blanche the leeks in salted boiling water for a few minutes, depending on the size and freshness. Remove from the water, wipe with a sponge or towel. Daub the leeks with olive oil and grill on the BBQ or in the oven for a few minutes until they are tender and well colored.
  • Cook the eggs in the same water as the leeks for 4 minutes to keep them soft. Shell the eggs and cut them into large chunks or slices.
