Leeks

Leeks are similar to onions and garlic, and are especially delicious when cooked. They're great in soup stock, veggie-packed pastas, savory brunch dishes and creamy soups. The next time you're craving pizza, try making your own with leeks, Fontina cheese and rotisserie chicken for an amazing combination—and if you use store-bought dough, this recipe is faster than any pizza delivery. Another Food & Wine favorite is an upgrade on classic potato-leek soup, which calls for the addition of broccoli, pancetta, sage and rosemary for a richer, complex flavor.

Leeks Vinaigrette
I love serving this dish on a platter or individual plates. It's especially good crowned with grilled chicken, pork or even just a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese.
Grilled Baby Leeks with Romesco Sauce

Tony Mantuano created this recipe, also adapted from Wine Bar Food, in homage to the Calçotada in Spain. The Catalan festival celebrates the harvest of calçots, which are slender onions similar to baby leeks. After peeling the charred outer layers, festival-goers dip the softened onions in a vibrant romesco sauce, which Mantuano makes with sweet red bell peppers. "It's fantastic," Mantuano recalls. "Everyone has black fingers from the char."
