Leeks are cousins to the old, familiar onion, but the flavor of leeks is sweeter, more delicate, and reminiscent of garlic or chives. Leeks are delicious no matter how they're cooked, and they're often considered to be a gourmet onion because they are less commonly used and harder to find than onions.
Leeks contain generous amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making the vegetable a wise addition to a healthy diet.
Quick Fried Leeks—1-2 leeks- sliced thin, 1 tbsp. coconut oil, 3 tbsp. Minced ginger, ½ minced garlic clove. Quick fry the leeks- stirring frequently- until they become crispy and golden brown. Place on greens, fish or potatoes…delicious! (Alternatively, place a lid on the pan and the leeks will cook without browning.)
