Substitute fries for these fabulous, fresh fritters!
Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Sauté the leeks for a few minutes until they begin to brown. Set aside to slightly cool.
In a bowl, mix together the cooled leeks and all remaining ingredients. Combine batter well.
Heat olive oil in the same pan. Once the oil is hot, drop a large spoonful of batter (about 2 tablespoons) into the pan for each fritter. Slightly flatten (like a small pancake) and cook a couple of minutes on each side until golden and browned. Set on paper towels to drain excess oil.
