man holding leeks Rediscovering Leeks - EAT LOVE SAVOR International Luxury Lifestyle MagazineLeeks are widely available and have been used in cooking for over 3000 years in Europe and Asia. There are fall/winter leeks and spring leeks. While not as commonly used as its cousin the onion, this is an underestimated vegetable that adds great appeal and sophistication to a dish.

You can use them wherever you’d use an onion and can be used as a feature ingredient like in a leek and mushroom omelet or quiche, braised and served with sauce, cut thinly and sauteed with apples and served as a side dish, added to soups and stews and are great on a pizza. Unwashed, uncut and refrigerated, they keep for about two weeks. Why not whip up this lovely French Leek Tart, perfect for a lunch, brunch or side dish.
