What are Leeks?
Leeks are root vegetables that look quite similar to onions, to which they are related. Their flavor is onion-like but much milder. People who avoid leeks because they don't like onions should try them — their flavor is mellow and not overpowering.
Leeks are a great source of fiber in your diet, and may actually help lower cholesterol. Leeks are also a very good source of manganese and a good source of vitamin C, iron, folate and vitamin B6.
Leeks are most commonly used in soup, are edible raw, and can impart a great crunchy flavor to salads or when eaten with a dip.
