Creamy Leek Sauce with Gruyere



Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat and add garlic and sliced leek. Slowly cook sliced leek, stirring often, until golden and softened, about 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook until the flour changes color just slightly.
Remove garlic clove and then gradually add the milk, stirring all the time. When sauce is smooth and thick, pour in cream. Bring back to the boil, lower the heat and cook for 5 minutes.
Add Gruyere and cook, stirring, until cheese has melted. Remove from heat and cool slightly before serving. This sauce keeps well refrigerated for up to four days.
