British Leeks Carbonara Recipe

February 7, 2017

I have teamed up with the British Leeks Growers Association to try out one of the recipes on their website. They support British farmers who grow leeks and I love supporting and buying local British produce. I also really like Leeks but I don’t normally cook them apart from occasionally in casseroles. So I was excited to create a recipe, this is what I chose:

Larkin Cen’s Lemony Chicken, Leek and Pancetta Spaghetti Carbonara

Chicken & Leek Carbonara & Wine

You can find the recipe here:

The recipe is really easy to follow and I’m happy with how it turned out. I wouldn’t normally think about adding leek to carbonara but it added a nice flavour. Similar to an onion but much more delicate. The pancetta and parmesan also made this dish very tasty. However if I was going to make this again I would add more cream as I like lots of sauce on my pasta.

I will definitely be making some more dishes with leeks such as quiches, risotto and casseroles.

Leeks are super healthy helping to stabilise blood sugar, reduce bad cholesterol and helps with effective kidney function.
