Favorite autumn vegetable but not only, since in Greece it grows almost all year round. Looks like a big chive, with a white stem and green foliage. Leeks belong to the onion family but have a milder, sweeter taste. It is low in calories and high in vitamins, so it is suitable for those who are careful about their diet.
Consumption: The first meal that comes to mind is of course rice with leeks or in Greek prasorizo. However, you can add it to soups, pies, spanakorizo (very popular Greek dish with spinach and rice) and risotto.
In general, leeks are suitable for almost any food and can be cooked in all ways, in the pan, in the oven, in the pan, steamed, on the grill...
