While a hearty leek soup is one of our favourite winter warmers, this tasty veggie is so more versatile that that! Here, we've pulled together a selection of creative recipes that allow this onion-like plant to shine. We've used both regular and pencil leeks in our recipes, which include a tasty leek and pumpkin risotto and an easy leek quiche. Or, just let them stand on their own in a side dish, tossed through with romesco sauce.
This classic winter soup is beautiful served hot off the stove-top with a generous drizzle of pure cream and some crunchy char-grilled baguettes. Comfort food has never been so quick, easy and surprisingly healthy.
Hearty, comforting and utterly delicious, a pasta bake goes a long way in satisfying those hunger pangs and this quick recipe sneaks in a few healthy veggies to help hit your five-a-day with ease - yum!
