4 of 6 | LEEKS
One of the earliest spring vegetables, leeks
lend their mild onion-like flavor to salads and
dips, and can be substituted into just about
any recipe that calls for onions or scallions.
They’re especially flavorful in a creamy soup. The benefits Leeks contain immune-boosting,
cholesterol-lowering allicin and
vitamins A and C. Studies show they may also
hold the same anti-microbial powers their
cousins garlic and onions boast. Serving suggestion Slice them into thin
strips to add to a green salad.
