Leeks

By

Leeks get high marks for heart health, thanks to their stores of folate, fiber, and antioxidants.

Meet the leek. It may look like an oversize scallion, but this cousin of garlic and onions has a milder taste and a touch of sweetness that sets it apart. Most recipes call for only the white and light-green parts, so choose leeks with long bulb ends and no cracks. Bright-green leaves are a sign of freshness; avoid those that are limp or yellowing. Leeks stay fresh in the refrigerator for a week or two. Clean them well before using to remove grit. This cold-weather vegetable gives dishes an earthy flavor - whether it's the star ingredient of a supporting player - and can be braised, roasted, sauteed, and even grilled.
