Veggie of the Month: Leeks & Green Onions

The March vegetables of the month are… leeks and green onions (also known as scallions)!

Green onions are immature onions used often in Asian cuisine. Leeks look very similar to green onions but are much larger. Both leeks and green onions are low in calories and high in vitamin A. If you are looking to add fiber to your diet, choose green onions over leeks.

Both can be served raw or cooked in a large variety of dishes. For more information on the vegetable of the month including recipes, visit: http://www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov/month/.
