Leeks have a distinct flavour. They are excellent cooked braised in cream and served by themselves or simmered in butter as an accompanying vegetable. Leeks are wonderful in soups and broths, and have rightly earned the title "king of the soup onions" Coack-a-leekie and creme vichyssoise are two classic soups. Unlike onions, leeks should not be allowed to brown as they become tough and bitter.
