A delicious (and vegan!) pesto with a twist-- fresh peas & mint combine with sunflower seeds for a bright taste of summer. Spread on veggie burgers, toss with pasta, swirl into veggie soups, freeze cubes for a summer blast in January.
So many discard the roots of wild leeks. They are an amazing addition to delicate salads, sashimi and more. In my opinion, they are the best part of the leek (so good that this is generally my gift to chef friends). Sustainable leeks are key. :)
