Cutting Leeks


Don’t be intimated; leeks are a wonderful alternative to onions and easier to clean and cut than you think. Follow these five steps for the perfect leek experience.

  • Chop off the base (roots)
  • Chop off the flag (green leaves)
  • Cut the remaining leek in half lengthwise
  • Cut half-moon sections
  • Place in a bowl of water to remove dirt

Leeks tend to have dirt in them, so don’t skip the last step.
