The British Leeks season launches on November 1 and runs through to the end of April. Delicious and nutritious, leeks can help you to stay healthy and cooking with them can help cut food costs too.
This season we’ve put together six budget-friendly recipes, devised by Jane Hornby - author and BBC Good Food cookery writer. Each delicious recipe will feed a family of four for under £5.
Leeks are a truly versatile vegetable. They have a milder, sweeter flavour than onions and a smooth texture similar to asparagus and work brilliantly in a wide range of dishes.
