trisHow to choose a good leek

Look for leeks that have long, white stems. The best size for leeks is medium and they should appear crisp. Prefer leeks that have all or some of the roots still attached. The presence of the roots indicates that the leek is still intact; if the base of the leek has been cut, the flesh begins to dry out.

Why eat leek

Leek, from the same family of vegetables as the garlic and the onion, is rich in essential oils which improve digestion. It contains vitamin E and carotene, which are important for healthy, elastic and gentle skin.Contains little fat and sugar, and a lot of cellulose which causes feeling of satiety, and thus it is ideal for maintaining a normal body weight during the winter.
