Leeks

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.
