Leeks are very similar to onions in lots of ways - they're from the same allium family and they perform the same job - but leeks have sweeter and more delicate taste.
They come into season in late winter just when there is little other fresh veg available to harvest, so it's a welcome addition to the veg bags during this time.
Leeks make an excellent base for soups, stews, pies and quiches. They go well with potatoes, lemon, cheese and cream. But there's so much more you can do with them! So we've compiled a diverse selection of dishes you can make with the humble leek.
