Ingredients 

½ lb chopped fresh leeks, white part only
1½ Tbsp unsalted butter
1⅓ Tbsp all purpose flour
⅔ cup 1% milk
½ tsp sea salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions 
  1. Over medium heat, melt butter in a small saucepan. Add leeks, sautéing until translucent. Add flour and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. 
  2. Keeping heat at medium, add milk and continue stirring until it thickens and coats leeks. Reduce heat to low and cook for 3 more minutes, stirring constantly to avoid scalding.
