I always thought leeks were funny vegetables – they look kinda like a weed (I mean, they’re tall, stiff, and grass-like). But when it comes to good-tasting, they’re definitely pretty high up there on my list of vegetables! It’s sort of like eating a weird non-GMO hybrid of onion, spring onion, and garlic. And they go fantastically well with eggs!
Before, I move on to the recipe, though, here’s a cool fact I just found out about leeks (I’m constantly amazed by what I can learn from Wikipedia!): leeks actually appear on the coronation gown of Queen Elizabeth II because they’re the national emblem of Wales (well, I knew that last bit about Wales)!
Oh, and another cool fact…that’s my lovely mother holding the plate (I know, I know, you can only see her hands – we’re both camera shy)!
