A typical haul from the local Farmer’s Market: a whole lotta greens!

Risotto-Style Leek Greens

{AIP, Paleo, Low Carb/Ketogenic, Low-FODMAP, Coconut-free}

Elegant comfort food: Risotto-Style Leek Greens served over fresh asparagus + pan fried wild salmon and crispy fried salmon skin.

Risotto-Style Leek Greens make for a memorable meal that marries the texture of the traditional rice dish with the nutritional vigor of fresh leek greens.

Leeks have a lot to offer in the way of vibrant health and, like their cousin garlic, much of their healing power comes from their sulfur-containing compounds, like the phytonutrient allicin. The existence of allicin is good news, especially for those of us battling infections. That’s because allicin is anti-bacterial, anti-viral AND anti-fungal. Boom baby!
