Leeks are a part of the onion family, and if you're like me, you cook with onions nearly on a daily basis. Leeks however, are generally forgotten as a main, or even side dish. Pumpkin, although celebrated during October, is rarely used a simple side dish, which means they are generally seen as a vegetable which requires too much 'effort'.
Merely boiled veggies are boring, but the way I've cooked them, these side dishes are brimming with flavour, and have a slight sweetness, too.
By seasoning these side dishes with simple herbs and spices, they're transformed from everyday vegetables, into something you'll want on the table every day.
