About Organic Leeks

Leeks are a tender, edible member of the lily family. They have a mild onion taste with a slightly sweet edge and look like over-grown green onions. Leeks contain many sulphur compounds and an impressive amount of polyphenols, including the flavonoid kaempferol. These substances play a considerably important role in support of our body's antioxidant and detox systems as well as the formation of our connective tissue. Leeks are a very good source of manganese and a good source of vitamin C, iron, folate, and vitamin B6.

I bought these leeks to make the savoury cakes suggested here - they are fantastic. Really good for taking on picnics.

Gluten Free Leek, Carrot and Beetroot Savoury Cake Recipe

Summary: Savoury cakes are very popular in France. They are great to have for a light lunch with a green salad, or to take on a picnic. You can also cook them in mini muffin tins and put them in children (or adult) bento boxes. All time favourite savoury cakes include olives, pesto, sundried tomatoes, … This one is packed full with caramelised leeks and the grated beetroot and carrot somehow deliciously vanish in the cake … We use goats milk and yoghurt, as it is easier to digest than cow dairy. You could also use soy milk and soy yoghurt. Rapadura is made by evaporating sugar cane juice, leaving unrefined sugar. Rapadura is rich in nutrients with a lovely flavour. Kuzu root is a natural thickener used in Japanese cooking. You could use cornflour instead if you can not get kudzu, but while cornflour is low on nutritional value, the Japanese use kuzu in the same way we use Echinacea : it helps prevent colds, promotes good digestion, helps to ease aches and pains, and is even used in a hangover remedy, along with umeboshi plum, grated ginger and lemon juice. Not bad for a cake ingredient … And finally, please feel free to substitute the gluten-free flour for the flour of your choice. Spelt flour, for example, makes a more dense and nutty cake.
