Stir fry Leek Flower with Prawn ~蒜花炒虾仁

Saw some leek flower on sell in the local supermarket last week. I grab a pack to cook for dinner. I always love the leek flower, they have got taste, texture, fiber and those cute looking buds are pretty and edible. The leek is a vegetable that belongs, along with the onion and garlic family. The leek flower is actually the Leek scapes or the shoot of the leafless flower stems of the leek plant. Usually the 'flower' is eaten before it blooms.This entire stalk and flower buds are edible and it is delicious. It is like leek flavored asparagus.

Stir fry Leek Flower with Prawn
This dish is simple to prepare and it is delicious. The leek scape has got its garlicky and sweetness taste after cook. Yum!!

The local supermarket sell this at RM12.50 per kg.

 The leek flower or leek scapes!

Just a simple Chinese style stir fry, the leek flower 
with prawn this dish will be so delicious!

To cook a crunchy and good tasting leek flower,
the skin on the shoot, like a soft membrane,
of the leek flower have to be remove. 

It is just like the a vegetable dish you order from
 the Chinese restaurant!
