In this week’s video, Kirsty talks about beetroot, leeks and turnips as well as showing how to make a niçoise salad.
thinly slice some garlic and put in a pan with olive oil. Add caraway seeds until they pop then add orange zest and juice. Add peeled beetroot and carrots (and turnips if you have them). Roast it in the oven.

These are coming through now and don’t need too much cleaning but if you do want to clean them, take a knife, run it down the centre of the leek twice, then hold them down and rinse under a tap to get rid of the mud.
To cook them, try a leek and lemon pasta dish.
