Seasonal Ingredient of the Week: Leeks
Our recent love of leeks is another one that our seasonal veg box has contributed towards (for anyone in North or East London, it’s called Growing Communities and they deliver a bag of locally grown, seasonal organic veggies to local drop off points once a week - we’ve been using it at home for over a year now and it’s life changing!).
It’s become a weekly staple alongside onions and garlic, and makes the perfect base to soups, stews and sauces. Given it’s close relation to onions, it also makes a great replacement. Think outside the box and add them to savoury pancakes or try crispy leeks on ramen.
