Leek is usually served boiled or steamed, but can also be eaten raw in salads. The vegetable is ideally suited for use in soups, stews or bakes. Together with a tasty sauce, it makes an ideal accompaniment to flash-fried meat. It is used as soup greens in combination with carrots and celeriac.


The leaf tips should be fresh and upright in a fanned arrangement, the shaft must be firm and the root white. Leek stays fresh for around one week in the crisper drawer of the fridge.
