5 Reasons to eat leeks…..
- They are in season
- Full of Vitamin K – Essential for proper blood clotting
- Loads of Vitamin B6 – Necessary for red blood cell production
- Folate (Vitamin B9) – Essential for making neurotransmitters
- Iron – Vital in our energy production
Leeks are so easy to cook, either pan fry or steam them. You can use them instead of onions for a slightly different flavour to any dish from a curry to a stir fry. Just remember to wash them well (especially the loose leaves near the top)
