Leeks are like stem or stalk. Mostly just the white and light green parts are eaten. They have a sweet, oniony flavor that adds depth to soups, stews, pasta, and more! I have made a delicious stir-fry that I learned from my mother-in-law from Srilanka. Coconut Milk is purely optional in this dish. I have tried with and without coconut milk, both taste amazing. This is prepared in exactly 10 minutes and is great as a side dish in any cuisine. Do give this a try and I promise, you will make it again.
