Pour stock into a large skillet, add bay leaf, and bring to a simmer. Add leeks, cover and simmer until tender, about 9-10 minutes.

Remove leeks from stock with a slotted spoon and arrange them on a serving platter, along with pepper strips.

In a small bowl, combine lemon juice and pulp, oil, tarragon, basil, garlic, and black pepper and whisk until combined.

Sprinkle over leeks, then serve warm or chilled.
