Leeks can be cooked in all sorts of different and delicious ways including:
• Pan fried - heat a small amount of olive oil and butter in a frying pan, add some sliced leeks and gently cook for about 5-10 minutes until tender
• Sautéed - for super healthy leeks, sauté with fennel and garnish with fresh lemon juice and thyme
• Stir fried - heat a little oil over a high heat in a frying pan or wok, add some prepared leeks and stir fry for a few minutes
• Baked - place some sliced leeks in an oven-proof dish, sprinkle with cheese or cover with white sauce and bake for 30-40 minutes at 190°C
• Roasted - pour some olive oil into a roasting tray and add leeks, making sure they are coated all over. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and roast in the oven (210°C) for 30 minutes
• Braised - pour a small amount of chicken or vegetable stock into a frying pan, add some prepared, sliced leeks, cover and gently cook for 10-15 minutes. Braised leeks dusted with fennel or mustard seeds are a delicious accompaniment to fish, poultry or steak
• Raw - spice up a salad by adding finely chopped leeks and dress generously with vinaigrette
Leeks make a fantastically flavoursome vegetable side dish. Equally, they work wonderfully in a wide variety of recipes such as casseroles, omelettes and frittatas, risottos, quiches, pasta sauces and soups.
