    Poireaux Vinaigrette

    What is green and white, boosts the immune system, has an antibiotic effect and is a vitamin C bomb? Exactly, our August season star: the leek!

    There are 572,473 reasons why the leek is one of our very favorite vegetables. But since none of us has the time to read a multi-page declaration of love, we have to keep it short. Let’s start with the most important thing: the taste. The relationship to onions and garlic cannot be denied (luckily) – but the leek charms with a much milder aroma and is a lot more digestible. The leek is a welcome party guest in many hearty dishes; it can be integrated anywhere and adapts perfectly to its surroundings without losing its presence. In addition, the leek is very frugal. If stored correctly, it will keep for a an amazingly long time and wait patiently for its use. We say yes, the leek is just great! So it’s no surprise that this month’s recipe is also a blast: Poireaux Vinaigrette.

    Poireaux Vinaigrette is an ideal summer starter: it is prepared in no time, healthy and a treat for all the senses. In addition, it is less well known in our latitudes, which gives guests the exclusivity joker.

    Enough banter, let’s get going with the leeks!
