Project Scope

The FIRST British Leeks Ambassador!  Our role was to create recipes, and videos to demonstrate how versatile the British Leek is; how to use the whole leek to be more sustainable, and using our Nutrition credentials to promote the wonderful health benefits of leeks

Some of the Leek recipes created...


Leek leaf 'wantons'

Leek leaves are most certainly not to be ignored or discarded!  These wantons are inspired by wonderful global dishes like banana leaf wrapped parcels, cabbage rolls and dolmas.  Delicious, and great for entertaining


Leek heart salad with fig, walnut, spinach and cashew 'cheese'

A wonderful salad using the ‘heart’ of the leek, the delicious light green centre of the leek leaves, which are far too often discarded.  Lightly sautéed, and served. on a salad of buckwheat, spinach and topped with walnuts, figs and a cashew ‘cheese’

Created for British Game Week this light and refreshing recipe for British Game Alliance with delicious roasted partridge breast on a bed of leeks and watercress, with a delicious salsa-verde dressing.
British Leeks make a great salad vegetable for the Winter months, and we used the stem of the leek for the salad, and the dark green leek leaves in the salsa-verde dressing, so there’s #zerowaste
Leeks are a great source of gut friendly pre-biotics and rich in fibre, so great for our health as well as delicious.
Served warm, this is a lovely light lunch or dinner.
