Moments with Healthy Leeks!

Recently my boyfriend and I took a walk in the forest and stumbled across patches of leeks. We couldn't believe how many leeks we found. We picked as many leeks as we could and put them in my backpack. That evening we enjoyed leeks in our vegetable stir fry and today we enjoyed bowls of delicious leek soup.

Today is the first day of June. In some parts of the world June is the month of long days and the beginning of summer. Leeks are the perfect summer food. They're loaded with essential vitamins, are low in calories and highly nutritious.
Consuming leeks can actually help with weight loss.

Leeks are similar in taste to shallots. Stay healthy by adding leaks to your diet. You can purchase leeks at your local supermarket or farmer's market or pick them in the woods.

Happy Moments with Healthy Leeks!


MAGICAL LEEK SOUP: (from a French chef)

Clean the leeks and rinse well to get rid of soil Cut off the ends of the dark green parts, leaving all the white parts.

Put the leeks in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for about 20 to 30 minutes. Drizzle the leek soup with a few drops of olive oil and sprinkle some chopped parsley on top.
