About:

Leeks are the mildest member of the onion family, and have a slightly sweet edge. Their green, overlapping leaves and white stalks give them a resemblance close to a giant green onion. Be sure to clean them carefully!

This food is low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate and Manganes and has just 54 calories per serving.

Yes, we absolutely love leeks. Roast, braise, sauté, grill, fry, boil, poach, or even eat leeks raw – just slice thinly and add to some greens. They are a great addition to nearly any kind of savory cuisine, from vegetable and poultry dishes to soups and stuffings. 

Leek Fritters with Minted Yogurt

3-4 Leeks
I bunch Spinach
¼ cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 cup Flour
2 Eggs
½ stick Melted Butter
½ cup Milk
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Cumin
¼ tsp Cinnamon
1 pinch Clove
¼ tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Red Chili Flakes

1 cup Greek Yogurt
½ cup Chopped Mint
½ cup Chopped Parsley
2 cloves Garlic
Juice from 1 Small Lemon
½ tsp Salt

Start by making the sauce. The flavor gets better if it sits while making the fritters. Combine the yogurt, mint, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and reserve for later.

Remove all of the dirt from your produce. Chop the leeks and spinach into thin, half-inch pieces. Heat a large frying pan with olive oil and sauté the leeks with salt until soft. Add the spinach and heat until wilted. Set aside to cool. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, eggs, butter, milk, and baking powder with a whisk until smooth. Stir in all of the spices and cooled greens until evenly combined. This is your batter, fry them up just like little pancakes until golden brown on both sides. Serve warm with the minted yogurt sauce. Enjoy!
