The best substitute for leeks.?
What is the best substitute for leeks, green onions or normal onions? And if I want to use it in a casserole, do I exchange the same amount of leeks with green onions?

I would substitute shallots or yellow onions (the kind with brown skin). Green onions aren't that different in flavor from large onions or shallots but they are more delicate-textured, so they're best in soups, scrambled eggs or for garnishing recipes. You could use half shallots and half something else like mushrooms. It really depends what else is in the recipe.Source(s): http://www.easyasparagusrecipes.com/asparagus-leek... http://www.potatosouprecipe.org/Potato-Soup-Recipe...

Shallots are perhaps the best possible substitution for leeks. They have a similarly delicate texture to properly cooked leeks, and their flavor is mild enough that you do not need to worry about

I would use normal onions because the green ones are just kind for like soups and just like a garnish but if your are cooking it in a casserole then used the green ones.Source(s): cooking for 8 years.
