Recipes usually tell you to discard the dark green leek tops. Show them some love with this healthy baked cod recipe! Cooking the leek tops a bit longer makes them meltingly delicious. They're also high in fructans, a type of prebiotic fiber that contributes to good gut health.
Tip: How to Prep Leeks: Trim the root end and 1 inch off the leek greens. Cut 2 inches off of the white end; halve it and cut lengthwise into thin strips. Cut the remaining light and dark green portions in half lengthwise. Rinse well to clean between layers without pulling them apart. Pat dry.
Serving Size: 4 oz. cod, 1 cup braised leeks & 1/4 cup frizzled leeks
