LEEK, PRAWN AND CHILLI SPAGHETTI
For a fantastic winter British vegetable that tastes delicious and is great for your health (it’s a Slimming World speed food), look no further than the humble British leek.
Launching on 1st November, the British leek season runs through to April. While it’s often harder to source locally grown, fresh vegetables during the colder months – the leek is one British green that can provide the cornerstone to uncomplicated, hearty dining. Not only full of flavour, leeks are packed with vitamins and crucial anti-oxidants, essential to helping you stave of winters colds and flu.
