- The tougher green ends of a leek can be used to flavour soups. Just wash well and secure in a cheesecloth bag while the soup is cooking.
- Simmer sliced leeks in vegetable, chicken, or beef broth to add extra flavour.
- Sauté leeks and add them to a quiche, omelette, or frittata.
- To get the mellowed sweet flavour of leeks, sauté them with a bit of butter and let them cook down until they look “melted”. This preparation produces a slightly sweet flavour that is delicious in any dish.
