About Leek with Rice:

I don’t know much about leek, but the only thing I know it’s yummy and like it or not, it’s healthy. Once you cook this dish, you may serve it with some yogurt on it. I’m sure it’ll be more delicious. You should have eat leeks at least once a month in my opinion since the vitamins and minerals they have. And a final note: As I know, this vegetable belongs to the garlic and onion family. That’s interesting…
