Leek pie for flavor and health! Cut or chop and onion or leek and you release their cancer- and diabetes-fighting compounds. One of the major phytochemical compounds in onions, leeks and their relatives is allicin, which helps fight cholesterol production and has known antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungus properties. They even have other antioxidant compounds that provide anti-inflammatory relief from the common cold and flu.

Variation I: Instead of yogurt, add 1 cup of feta or 1 cup of soft Greek mizithra cheese.
Variation II: There is a nettle pie with yogurt very similar to the one with leeks. Instead of leeks, chop and wash (with gloves because nettles sting) 2 pounds of nettles. Saute in olive oil and combine as above, with either eggs and yogurt or eggs and feta.
