Chinese Leeks are smaller and thinner than the regular leeks. It is more pungent in flavour compared to the regular leeks. When I buy these leeks, I would prefer this over the regular ones, it has a more intense flavour and smell. Choose the small and young tender ones as the big ones can be rather tough.
The Chinese would usually stir-fry this veggie with dried Chinese sausages. It can be stir-fried together with other vegetables such as carrots, cauliflowers, sweet peas, brocolli, mushroom and capsicums. I love it just plain with Chinese sausages. This veggie actually sweetens when cooked. Even though this veggie is available almost whole year round, they are most popular during the Chinese New Year festival.

Leeks are a good sources of folic acid, iron and potassium. They are low in calories. They also supply magnesium, calcium, copper, vitamin C,B6 and rich in vitamin A.
