Here Are 5 Reasons To Make Leeks One Of Your Five-a-Day From Nutritionist Fiona Hunter:

  1. Energy – Leeks contain B vitamins which help the release of energy.
  2. Gut Health – Leeks contain a type of fibre called Frucooligosaccharides (FOS) which can encourage the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut.
  3. Bone Health – Leeks contain Vitamin K which is important for bone health.

  5. Immune System-Leeks contain B vitamins which help support the immune system.

How To Make Lemon And Kale Chicken Tagine:

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20-25 minutes

Serves 4


  • 2 preserved lemons, roughly chopped (50g)
  • 28g pack coriander
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 150g Leeks, sliced (approx. 1 medium)

How To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC, gas mark 6.
  2. Place the lemons, coriander including the stalks, garlic, leek and 50g kale into a food processor with the stock and blitz to give a coarse paste.
  3. Heat the paste in a frying pan with the chicken for 5 minutes and transfer to a casserole dish, cover with a lid and cook for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, blanch the remaining kale in boiling water for 3 minutes and then stir into the chicken tagine.
  5. Place the couscous in a small bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water, cover with clingfilm and leave for 5 minutes, fluff up with a fork and serve with the tagine and a spoonful of fat free natural yogurt.
