Happy St David's Day to all my Welsh friends! I think it is really important to celebrate our heritage and culture and I am sure you have some wonderful celebrations planned. With many of the Welsh wearing the national symbol of the leek today, which is Saint David’s personal symbol, I thought that I would make my own tribute to this fine vegetable! The leek is closely related to onion, garlic, scallions and shallots but a lot milder in flavour then some of its relations which make them very versatile and tasty. Low in calories but high in fibre they contain polyphenols, vitamins C and K and iron and are great for weight loss. With their powerful health benefits, they should be cherished by all, not just the Welsh! One of my favourite recipes is my Winter warming Savoy cabbage, leek and wonton skin ‘noodle’ soup. A comforting dish that will keep you warm and fill you up and deliver nutrients. The wonton skins add a nice, satisfying, silken texture, which the Savoy cabbage is low in fat and high in fibre. The perfect dish for a cold and rainy Tuesday in March and suitable for veggies and vegans too! For the full recipe, pick up my book Eat Clean: Wok Yourself to Health http://bit.ly/eatcleanbook. Let me know what you think! Dydd GÅµyl Dewi Hapus! Love, Ching x
