So I chopped them up with some potatoes and made little fried latke-type veggie cakes! To con the kid into trying them, I called them "Birds Nests."
And you know what? They were amazing! The leeks are kind of onion-y, but not as strong, so added a nice flavor complement to the potatoes and cabbage. They're fairly time intensive though, at 24 latkes per batch, and 8+ minutes cooking time per 3-5 latkes. Blarg. But boy are they worth it!
They're far yummier fresh out of the pan, but with enough salt and possibly ketchup, also yummy at room temp or slightly chilled in a lunch!
