"I want people to stop throwing away the green part of leeks because that's the healthiest part of the veggie," implores Julie.

She recommends using the green part by slicing it across the grain into very thin slivers, then julienning those pieces and adding them to stir fries or even leek soup, which is always a favourite this time of year.

Leeks, she says, help reduce allergic reactions and in addition to other nutrients contain sulphur which also helps detoxify the liver.
