This would be a winner with me. I love risotto of any description, and the simplicity of flavouring just with leek is very appealing.

The tangy feta is a nice touch.....a good foil for the sweet ingredients in this dish. Looks good!

Oh yum! This looks ultra creamy. Extra feta sprinkles on top for me please:)

Ooooo this sounds delicious and easy to boot! Might be a good side dish for roasted chicken.

Leeks are among my favorite ingredients and I love how they sort of melt into risotto. The feta makes it even more special. I would be happy to curl up around a bowl of this. ;-)
