These confit leeks are slow cooked in grassy olive oil for two hours until spreadable and soft, making for the perfect crostini topper. The rich oniony flavor of the leeks is balanced by sweet and milky ricotta, which is spread on crisp, toasted baguette slices for crunch. You’ll be left with ample amounts of leek-infused olive oil, which can be used in a myriad of recipes such as in salad dressings or drizzling over vegetables.
