I have never had a leek or used leeks in cooking before today. This is what I learned. A leak is NOT a "leafy green". It's a giant green onion. Yep! And when I juiced it, my eyes started watering like crazy until I got the carrots in. Poor Bud, eager to watch me, was in the line of fire and his eyes started watering too.
I suppose I should have figured it out. Look at those stems! They look just like green onions!
I will NOT be making that combination juice again. Too bad there was enough juice for 2 servings.
I can't decide if I should just stick to tried and true recipes or continue to experiment and learn about different vegetables in surprising ways. Thoughts?
I have a dull headache forming. Too many leeks perhaps? Sugar withdrawals?
