Aren't they pretty? They look like some kind of under water sunflower.....
Read about how I have overcome my fear of cooking with these little pretties.
Leeks, I have 'Leeky Love'.
I have always loved the flavour of leeks in soups, omelets, frittatas & dips. I have never cooked with a leek, I have always been afraid of them and now is the time to conquer this fear!
So I did my research, went to the grocery store and carefully selected my first ever bundle of leeks.
I got them home cut off the roots, cut off the greens and went to town!
Oh so easy....what was I afraid of all these years?
I peeled off the tough outer edge and sliced them for my soup. Now my research suggests that after chopping you would rinse them in cold water but I didn't, mine were very clean looking.
Now I can breathe easy, I conquered my fear and off I go to create all sorts of leek filled goodies. Number one on my list, Potato & Leek Soup, I MUST recreate the soup I recently enjoyed.... I've been craving it!
Stay tuned for the recipe tomorrow.
