Eating Leaks was one of the folk remedies for haemorrhoids.
in fact anyone who had swallowed anything sharp was asked to eat bolied leeks to prevent the sharp object from damaging the stomach or bowel before it was expelled .
leeks are also used for cough remedies as they are excellent decindestant and expectirants .
low in calories and with very high amount of Vitamin A and C they are good to boost immunity too.
here’s my easy peasy recipe for soup.
3 Tbsp oil or ghee of your choice
2 large leeks, white and light green parts , roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped into pieces
litre of water or vegetable broth
bay leaves n sprigs fresh thyme
Or rosemary whatever you like teaspoon salt n ground black pepper
saute chopped leeks n garlic in the oil/ ghee/ butter add chopped potatoes n water with all spices n boil
Cover and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are very soft.
Remove thyme sprig and bay leaves, then purée the soup severe it got with bread.
add chopped chives for more taste if you don’t have chives sprinkle rated almonds n burnt garlic
