Leeks are so beneficial for the kidneys, they are light and help the body get rid of toxins, they provide fibers to our intestines and can be so delicious, with a bit of olive oil for instance. Furthermore, leeks can be stored for quite long in the fridge.
As if that’s not enough, did you know that a super simple way of making the most of its high mineral content (mostly potassium) is to drink the cooking water of your leeks?
I am such a big fan of leeks bouillon, in which you need to add some sea salt (if you consume salt on a regular basis of course) because it improves the taste even more.
You know what? Even my ten-year-old son who dreams about hamburgers loves drinking leeks bouillon with me!
Lastly, enjoying a nice warm leeks bouillon is such a great and gentle way to break a fast.
