Leeks, with their unique combination of flavonoids and sulfur-containing nutrients, belong to the same vegetable family as onions and garlic. They're beautifully sweet in taste and provide an aromatic hint to dishes without overpowering them. Packed with essential nutrients, leeks are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, iron, and magnesium, and a very good source of folate as well as vitamins A, C, and K. Consuming leeks can contribute to your overall health, including heart health, bone health, and a strong immune system.

Storage Tips: Unwashed and uncut, leeks can be stored in the refrigerator's vegetable drawer for up to two weeks. Wrap them loosely in breateable bag to capture moisture and ensure they remain hydrated while preventing them from smelling like other foods in the refrigerator. Before using, wash thoroughly to remove any dirt lodged in their layers.

Note: Compared to onions, leeks have a milder and sweeter flavor, making them versatile and perfect for adding a subtle onion-like flavor to a variety of dishes without overpowering other tastes. They are especially popular in soups and stews.
