What can we do with the young slim leeks that are sometimes sold in the shops in early winter?
As they are young and tender, they can be quickly steamed or boiled for a salad dressed with a vinaigrette. This is a good entree served at room temperature with warm bread, or an interesting side salad served lukewarm with poached white fish. You can also cut young leeks into short lengths and add them to mixed vegetable soups, vegetarian casseroles or Asian stir-fries.
