Note: How to prepare leeks:

Cut wilted parts of the green tops off.

Cut top part of leeks four times to split the large leaves, but keep the stalk together.

Wash the tops in clean water very thoroughly. Leeks tend to hold on to dirt inside the leaves of the green part.

Then chop all parts, including the green parts and use.
