Fresh Leeks 1Kg
Leeks are not green onions. While both are considered part of the onion family, these are two different herbs. Known scientifically as allium porrum, the leek looks like a large green onion stalk. Even the young and thinner leeks are much bigger than green onions.
Leeks are low in calories but high in nutrients, particularly magnesium and vitamins A, C, and K. They boast small amounts of fiber, copper, vitamin B6, iron, and folate.
They have a sweet, oniony flavor that adds depth to soups, stews, pastas, and more! I'll share more of my favorite leek recipes in the post below, but generally, I use them as I do onions and shallots, to build flavor at the start of a recipe
