Crispy Oven Fried Leek Rings

1 large leek per person

Slice the leeks into rings. Use the white part and light green parts for this only. Use the dark green as a flavoring in soups and stocks.

Separate the rings and place in a bowl of ice water. rub and agitate to dislodge grit and sediment that all leeks collect.

Drain thoroughly ( we use a salad spinner)

Toss in a bowl with olive oil and sea salt to coat lightly

Place on a sheet pan and bake at 375 degrees until crispy light brown.
