Recipe Suggestions for Leeks

Ask a Question

I grew leeks this year for the first time, and delighted that they were a success!

Going to harvest this weekend, so open to recipe suggestions, both for now and some that I will chop and freeze!

Leek and Potato soup. You can make it and then freeze.

Leek, cheddar and bacon pie.

FG280 how lovely to be able to cook your own produce!

I don’t add cream if I’m freezing a batch, but bow to TheChimp as I think he is a far better cook than me!

gerrykelly25 Oh no, don't do that.

I don't want to be responsible for ruining FG280's batch of soup.

I'd ask MrsChimp for advice, but she could burn a cup of tea.

As gerrykelly25 suggests, I'd go for a simple leek and potato soup.

All you need is onions, leeks, potatoes, stock and lots of seasoning. Add a bit of cream if you want to make it a bit richer.

TheChimp Thank you! If I'm making and freezing, would I be best leaving the cream until using? Just wondering if freezing would make it split?

FG280 I haven't had a problem with freezing after adding the cream in the first cook, but you've got me worried now just in case yours splits 😂

You could leave the leeks in the ground and dig them up as you need them through the Autumn and Winter.

Grannyclock one bolted, so I wasn't too sure if the rest would too? If not, this would definitely be a good idea. I left beetroot and carrot in last year and picked when needed

FG280 our first lot of leeks bolted too. I put some more in and they’ve hardly grown so I’m envious of you!

My favourite meal with leeks is leek gratin, used to buy from Waitrose but they run out quick and recently have stopped all together so my daughter does a great homemade one now with cayenne pepper.
