½ lb chopped fresh leeks, white part only

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.
