Dine Without Whine - A Family 

Friendly Weekly Menu Plan
The Mighty Leek


Just returned from the grocery store where I bought leeks! It is my:

Vegetable of the Week!

Allow me to explain.

I always figure variety is better in your diet. If you think about it, 150 years ago people ate a much bigger variety of meat (at least North Americans did) than we do. They had bear and deer and goose and duck and beef and chicken and fish. Whatever they could catch or grow.

Today we have beef, chicken, pork, and maybe fish.

So I've been adding emu and lamb and venison. Not so keen on the venison, but if I mix it with lots of beef it's not bad. The emu is amazing.

But we really should be doing the same thing with veggies, and sometimes I feel like I get into a rut.

So every week I'm going to buy a new vegetable and explore what to do with it. This week's is leeks. Any suggestions? I'm working towards leek and potato soup myself, but if anyone wants to steer me someplace, I'm willing to go!

Leeks are in the onion family, so they usually end up in soup in our house.
Venison may be an acquired taste- I grew up eating it and love it.

Leeks are great veggies! A bit sweeter than brown onions but other than that pretty much the same. The worst part is cleaning them :(

They are great in soups, but you can use them basically anywhere you might use an onion - spag bol, chicken pie, shepherd's pie, sauted with some butter as a side to a roast, in fried rice or a pasta bake... anything :) *sigh* I love them. Can you tell? ;)
