The organic leek, such a versatile veg. Its delicate sweetness is a dream in many a dish, especially so in soups. In fact, two of the world’s most famous soups, Scotland's cock-a-leekie and France's crème vichyssoise, actually wouldn’t exist without this member of the allium family. So we say, grab a bunch of spuds, pair them with some leeks, and whirr up into a star of a soup. Side note: leeks do love bacon too, in pastas or pies!

Producer

James Brown (not that one) is the soil singer who grows our veg on Pollybell Farm in Doncaster. They get a helping hand from mother nature - and one of the reasons their veg tastes so great is because the land is lovely and fertile thanks to the peat soil there, due to the dense ancient woodland that covered much of the area.

Storage & prep

When you are cleaning your leeks, you should not slice the top green leaves completely off. The white part of the leek will go up further than you thought, so only take off the green parts that you can see. Leeks can be used for stuffing, making soup, or eating alone as a side dish. If the recipe demands slicing, trim and rinse them, then cut them into slices and give a further rinse using a colander Leeks are best kept in your fridge. If you wrap them in plastic, your leeks will retain their moisture for longer.
