Leeks

February's best: Leeks

Packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins, the mighty leek can help stave off winter colds. It’s also the perfect partner to potatoes and cheese for deeply satisfying side dishes and suppers.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Add chopped and boiled leeks to mashed potato with a good knob of butter and plenty of black pepper.
  • Try wrapping parboiled leeks in smoked ham, pouring over a bit of white sauce, sprinkling over breadcrumbs and baking until golden brown. Great with bread and butter.
