Leeks

Leeks

Leeks are alliums like onions and garlic. Rather than forming a tight bulb like the onion, the leek produces a long cylinder of bundled leaf sheaths.

The white and light green portions of the leek and most often used, as the dark green portion has much less flavor and can be starchy. The tender flavorful part the stalks is for adding flavor to soups and stocks.
