Leeks

Date published: Friday, June 19, 2015     Author: Joanna M.     Comments: 0

Leeks are closely related to the old familiar onion but have a sweeter and more delicate taste. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are a good addition to a healthy diet.

How to pick:

Look for leeks that have as much white and light green as possible (the pale parts are the most usuable). Stalks should be crisp and firm. Smaller leeks have the best taste.

How to store:

Keep in a plastic bag in the drawer of your fridge. 

Cooking tip:

Roast leeks in the oven with olive oil, fresh herbs and salt and pepper.

Spice up your frozen peas! Saute some leeks in a pan with butter and when soft add your frozen peas until cooked.
