Product Description

These firm tightly layered leeks have a subtle sweet flavour; a versatile vegetable, they can be roasted, baked, boiled or stir fried.

Serving Suggestion
For a vegetable stir fry, if not already trimmed then trim leek by removing top and tail and outer layer, then chop into 1cm slices and add to wok with some chopped peppers and mushrooms, add a dash of soy sauce and serve with noodles.

Country of Origin
We're committed to buying British. When leeks are in season in the UK, we source from home. The rest of the year, when the British leek is out of season, we source from trusted overseas suppliers.

Portion Size
6 Portions based on FSA recommended 80g.

Product Size
Average size of 22cm & Average Diameter 40mm.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Nice Leeks But Clean? I Think Not!!

Leeks good quality and a sensible, quite even size. But amazed at reviews that said they are CLEAN. Okay, no mud but, as I was slicing and found knife was rapping over surface of board, they are riddled with very fine sand. A good rinse and they were fine.....

Pretty good!

We've been buying these instead of the superb Waitrose leeks since they've been on BOGOF and have been pleasantly surprised. Maybe we've been lucky but all our purchases have been of good quality and lasted well. Ok, they're not as perfect looking, long lasting, or clean as the Waitrose ones, but they're not far off so on BOGOF we've been very happy indeed. With so many leeks about we've been making a lot of easy soup - just chop and sweat one of these, a carrot and a potato for 15 minutes in some butter and black pepper, add 500ml veg stock for another 30 minutes and whizz in the blender. Dollop of cream and yum! Also lovely lightly fried and stirred into mash.

Great quality - no waste

Excellent quality, clean, no coloured leaves and very flavoursome. Made the best ever leek and potato soup.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Long lasting and delicious

We used these in homemade soups and lightly boiled and served with butter and they have a lovely rich full flavour. They kept for five days with no deterioration and were excellent in all ways.

Good leeks

Perhaps I have been lucky judging by previous reviews. I have been ordering these for several weeks and they have always been top quality, clean and not rotten. That said, the most recent ones I had were still good quality but very small. Taste wise, they are excellent I think.
