    Maybe this is a dumb question....
    Do you use the green part of a leek???
    Sun Dec 23, 2001 2:16 pm Groupie
    No you don't! Cut it off just where the green starts. It seems such a waste but I don't know of any recipe that uses it. Perhaps a soup recipe may but that's all I can think of. If you want any leek recipes I have scads just let me know.

    I knew it would be you who answered!!!
    Thanks Bergy
    I have never used them before but I have a recipe from the zaar that I am trying tonight. If I like them I will be sure to ask you for some more recipes.
    Thanks again, and Merry Christmas.
    Is it snowing in the Okanogan?? Sunshiney and clear here in Chilliwack.

    Bergy's right, it does seem such a waste, doesn't it? The only recipes I've seen that call for a goodly part of the leek are, as Bergy said, soups.

    The green part of a leek is very high in Vitamin K. Vitamin K has a serious counteractive effect against several prescription medications, especially blood thinners (Coumadin, etc.) So, before you use the greens, even in soup or vegetable broth, check with your doctor.

    Also, the green parts of green onions have the same effect, so be careful when making dips and spreads with them.

    Hope this helps,
