veggieLeeks have a mild, onion-like taste. They’re not quite as strong as an onion but have a nice bite to them. This leek recipe combines the mild flavor if leeks with the stronger flavor of white onions.
You Can Use Any Onion for This Leek Recipe
This leek recipe uses white onions but you can use red or Vidalia onions for a sweeter flavor. I just like the white onions here.
Make Sure to Clean Your Leaks Well
