How to Clean Leeks

Leeks can be notoriously dirty. It’s important to clean them well before using them. To clean leeks:

  1. Cut off the hard and dark green parts of the leeks off and discard. Cut off the bottom of the leek and then slice the leek in halve. Take that halve and slice it into 1/4″ pieces.
  2. Fill a large bowl with cool water.
  3. Submerge the leek pieces and swish around for 10 seconds.
  4. Let the leeks sit for 1 minute in the cool water to let any grit sink to the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Without agitating the water too much, quickly pick up the leeks directly out of the water, leaving behind any sand or dirt.
  6. Empty the water and rinse out the bowl and repeat this until step until the water is clear after you remove the kale.

How to Make a Frittata

Making a frittata is a two step process, but it’s still pretty simple to do.

  1. First you will start by cooking and of the ingredients you plan to use to flavor the frittata. In this case, we’re using potato, leeks and chard. All of these will be sautéed until mostly tender. Next you add in the whisked eggs and you scramble them around for a minute. This helps set the eggs on the bottom. You let them continue to cook for a few minutes until they are mostly cooked on the edges and then you transfer the whole dish to the oven.
  2. The frittata then finishes cooking in the oven.
