The whole of the leek can be eaten, although bulb like, leeks are comprised of layers of flat ‘leaves’ glaucous-green on the upper parts and white on the lower parts, they can reach up to 60cm in height, the inflorescences present in globes and consist of many small bell-shaped flowers that are white to pale pink in colour.

SUGGESTED USEThese tasty and convenient cut leeks can be added directly to soups, stews, casseroles and sauces to add colour, flavour and texture to your finished dish. They make an ideal ingredient to take on camping trips alongside other dried vegetables, a selection added to stock and noodles can give you an almost instant vegetable soup, they are easier to carry and require no preparation, ideal for cooking on the move. To rehydrate the dried leeks, pour over enough boiling water to cover and leave for up to 10-20 minutes to soften them, and then add to dishes such as savoury rice, or stir into creamy chicken sauces, and pasta dishes. Once rehydrated they can also be used as a topping for pieces, added to chicken to make chicken and leek pies.
