Melissa's Trimmed Leeks eliminates time and waste with this convenient package of only the edible parts of the vegetable, pre-washed and peeled.
Leeks have a deliciously mild onion flavor laced with subtle hints of garlic. However, fresh whole leeks are quite sandy and a bit labor intensive. The vegetable should be rinsed and drained several times throughout the preparation process, which includes peeling, trimming, slicing and then chopping. The outer layer of the leek and a lot of the tops are thrown away.
While leeks are primarily used as a soup ingredient, the vegetable pairs especially well with fish either sautéed as a stand-alone side dish or in a vegetable stir fry.
Store this product in the vegetable crisper section of the refrigerator at all times for up to twelve days.
