The leek is a vegetable that belongs, along with onion and garlic, to the genus Allium, currently placed in family Amaryllidaceae, subfamily Allioideae. Rather than forming a tight bulb like the onion, the leek produces a long cylinder of bundled leaf sheaths that are generally blanched by pushing soil around them.
Leeks have a mild onion-like taste. Leek powder is a great way to flavor many foods. The powder form adds flavor without bulk or liquid and can boost nutritional value without changing the volume of a dish. Vegetable powders like the leek powder are perfect in soups and stews and can act as a thickener. Add leek powder to ground meats to add flavor without the moisture. Vegetable powders are also a great add to seasoning blends offering salt-free flavor.
