The dark green part of leek leaves is often discarded as it is usually pretty tough. Since we can’t stand wasting food especially when we have a thousand and one ways to reuse those small scraps and cuts that would normally end up in the compost, we decided to use it.
A good simple way to put to use the harder, dark green leaves of your leek is to put them into the vegetable broth or in a vegetable soup.
Boil the green part until tender and add it to the eggs to make a frittata.
And again, cut the dark green part of leek into very thin strips, then lightly flour them and fry them up in some seed oil.
