Leeks are a rather used product in Tuscan cuisine, as are onions and spring onions.

The leek, in fact, is a liliacea as well as garlic, onion, shallot, its use overlaps with that of the onion, from which it differs for the best digestibility.

Traces of historical evidence have arrived that affirm that the leek was already known by the Celtic populations as early as 3,000 BC. hieroglyphs attesting to the use of leeks by the slaves involved in the construction of the pyramids have certainly been found. The leek spread in the Mediterranean basin and then all over the world, making itself appreciated for the perfume.

The use of leek has a great versatility, it is used both raw, for example to give aroma to salads, and cooked in various ways. Equally important are its healthy virtues for its purifying, diuretic and laxative characteristics, also remembering that it is a food with a low calories.
