So, what is purjolök?

Purjolök, also known as leek in English, is a versatile and delicious vegetable that is widely used in various cuisines around the world. It belongs to the same family as onions, garlic, and shallots and has a mild, sweet onion-like flavor. The edible part of the purjolök is the white and light green stem, which is tender and crispy when cooked. It's a great source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as iron, magnesium, and calcium. Purjolök can be grilled, roasted, braised, sautéed, or used raw in salads and sandwiches, making it a perfect addition to any dish.
