Leeks can be eaten raw on salads or mixed into a chicken or tuna salad. Leeks are generally sautéed in oil or butter to soften or “sweat” before adding to pizzas, pastas, egg dishes, risotto, or served on their own as a side. Chopped leeks are used in soups, stir-fries, or braised with carrots and celery. Leeks are also a popular tart or pastry filling.
To store, Leeks are best kept refrigerated
