   Cooking Tips

  • Yellow leeks are also known as leek sprouts. They are a common ingredient in Chinese dishes and resemble fine pale chives.
  • For a vegetarian alternative, replace the luncheon meat with slices of firm tofu. Stir-fry for 3 minutes until golden before adding the sprouts.
  • Serve with steamed rice for a delicious light meal.

Nutrition Advice

  • Leeks contain allicin. This has a number of health benefits, such as helping to lower cholesterol levels, regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of some cancers.
  • To lower the salt content of the dish, use low-sodium luncheon meat.
  • Bean sprouts are a great source of fibre, which can help lower LDL cholesterol levels and keep the heart healthy.
