10 dinner recipes with sliced or whole leeks

Since February, we’ve been working hard to pamper them, and soon they will be ready to be harvested! Of course, we’re talking about our fabulous local leeks from Sainte Brigitte des Saults 😃. By the way, to learn all about our leeks production, we invite you to read our article on how to grow perfect leeks.


But first, we decided to present you with 10 dinner recipes to be made either with whole leeks or with our bags of sliced leeks, which you can find in your favourite grocery store's prepared fruits and vegetables section. Let’s discover these fabulous recipes!

Use whole leeks in your recipes to enjoy the finesse of leek mignons 

Leek is a beautiful and versatile vegetable that can be eaten whole. Yes! Everything can be eaten, both the white part and the green part! We mainly use the leek mignon (the white part) in the following recipes, but please keep the green part! 😉 It’s sublime in soups, salads, dips, broths, stews and more! It’s also excellent for replacing onions (just like the white part) in any recipe. Okay, enough talking! Here are our 5 recipes for dinners with whole leeks!
