100g black olives, pitted (and sliced - optional; I let mine whole)
1 medium onion, diced

1 bunch of parsley
1 tbsp unrefined sunflower oil

This is one of my favorite dishes. I love onion and I love leeks even more, so for me it's the perfect combination. Be careful though when you prepare the leeks because they have to be rinsed very well. Dirt usually hides under their leaves and if you don't like the taste of sand in your food, be patient and clean them thoroughly.
I remember the first time I cooked this dish, it was delicious but unfortunately I didn't know that leeks have to be carefully rinsed and an unwanted extra-ingredient was added to my meal. Now, because I really lack of patience, I always ask my mom to help me and rinse the leeks.
This dish is perfect for those of you who are on a diet. It's low in calories and high in vitamins, very tasty and easy to make.
