Townsville's Favourite

Leek

Explore the subtle, sweet flavour of our fresh leeks. These versatile vegetables have a mild, onion-like taste with a hint of sweetness that enhances any dish. Slice them thin for a creamy leek and potato soup or roast them with olive oil for a caramelised side dish. You can also sauté leeks with butter and herbs for a simple yet delicious addition to any meal.

Selecting the best leeks is easy with these tips. Look for leeks that are firm, with straight stalks and vibrant green leaves. The white and light green parts should be free from blemishes and firm to the touch. Avoid leeks with yellowing or wilting leaves, as these are signs of aging. Smaller leeks are often more tender and have a milder flavour, making them ideal for delicate dishes​.

Leeks can be enjoyed in many delightful ways. For a comforting side, try roasting them with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper until they are tender and caramelised. You can also braise leeks in broth for a flavourful, tender dish. Sautéing leeks with garlic and butter brings out their natural sweetness and makes a great base for soups and stews. For a fresh twist, add thinly sliced raw leeks to salads for a crunchy, mild onion flavour​.
