Crispy Tofu Leek 6

Crispy tofu and noodle stir fry with leek & chili

British Leeks are at the height of their season right now – one of the few indigenous British vegetables to be at their best during the winter months.


This year British Leek Growers Association has teamed up with chef and social influencer Lucy Parker to create some new, delicious leek-based recipes.  They are all plant-based and simple and easy to prepare, typically taking between 10 and 20 mins preparation time.
