Leeks are the underappreciated cousins of the onion. These vegetables are milder and sweeter than onions and taste delicious when cooked into soups, stews, or stir fries. Perfectly sautéed leeks will add a delicious complex flavor to any dish.
Leeks are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin K1 & minerals like Manganese, all of which play crucial roles in ensuring optimal functioning of the body. Regular consumption of Leeks reduces inflammation, promotes heart health & also aids in weight loss.
Leeks let out a peculiar odor hence make sure to wrap them tightly in a dry plastic bag or container before refrigerating them. Use within one week of storage.
