Chop into pieces right up to the point where the outer layer starts to split. The green bits are superb.

One of our favourite veggies here. Boiled (quick and hot so you keep the crunch), roasted, or wrapped in ham and baked in a cheese sauce.

Making me hungry thinking about it.

A very fine seasonal vegetable that's at its best right now, as noted, eat every last bit that's not dry or dirty.

I like them sliced thinly and beaten into scrambled eggs or an omelette, fab in stir-frys, and use the more tender parts very thinly sliced into salads for a wonderful earthy flavour.

chop the tender parts finely and mix with grated cheddar for a twist on cheese on toast

or soften some in butter and stir into mashed potatoes........

.........or make a jacket potato, split in two, scoop out the cooked flesh, lightly mix the soft potato with leaks softened in butter, load back into the empty jacket skins, top with grated cheddar and bung under the grill
