Three-cornered leeks can be found in flowerbeds, hedgerows and verges. Tasting similar to baby leeks or chives, three-cornered leeks are wonderful chopped into mashed potatoes, blended with butter on new potatoes or steak, and in pesto like this recipe. I have used toasted walnuts for my pesto as their nutty robustness really complement the leeks.
