Presenting KO’s Prasorizo – Leeks with Rice. Like many Greek recipes, it is a simple and humble dish, but full of flavour and nutritious goodness.
Although I don’t like it when anyone says that one type of vegetable or fruit is better than another – all plant-based foods have a huge place in our diet – leeks do have something extra special – their very potent fibre!
I am a bit of a science geek as well as a foodie – so I love it when both interests intersect. There’s a growing understanding that the quality and variety of bacteria in our gastro-intestinal system (our gut) may control many aspects of our health – our metabolism, our immune system and our mental health. Wild, huh! These gut bacteria are called your microbiome and depending on what you eat – you can either improve their numbers and diversity or you can reduce both and potentially end up with some serious health issues. Fibrous food, especially leafy green vegetables are your microbiome’s favourite food and leeks are loaded with it. So go ahead, make Leeks with Rice and not only make your taste buds happy, make your gut bacteria happy too!
