With their unique sweet and delicate flavor, leeks stand out from the rest of their allium vegetable family and add subtle flavor to recipes without being overpowering. Sautéed, pureed, braised, or sliced and added to your favorite omelet are all great ways to enjoy the nutritious benefits of leeks!
To prepare, cut off the tough dark green parts of the leek first. You can use these for stock if you would like – otherwise, discard them. Trim off the beard at the bottom and then swish the leeks around in a bowl of water to get rid of the grit. Cut the leeks into rounds and then they are ready to use!
Fresh leeks can be stored in the refrigerator for one to two weeks. Avoid storing cooked leeks as they are extremely perishable and will go bad within two days.
