Leeks greens at first glance might be something you ignore when you get them, but they go well in a wide range of dishes.
In my house, the general rule of thumb is : If we’d usually add spinach to this dish, then leek greens can go in this dish.
We just leave out some of the onion, because the leek greens can be just as potent as the bulb on the bottom.
Heres a good dish that showcases the wild ramp leaves!
