What looks like leeks, smells like lemons and tastes great? Lemongrass, an aromatic plant that gives dishes like chicken curry or beef satay their signature fragrant flavor. Look for the fresh stuff at Asian markets, and choose firm stalks with green leaves. Before using, trim the tops and ends, and remove any loose outer leaves. Lemongrass is stringy so slice it thin for stir-fries or stews, or pulse it in a food processor for sauces or curries. To give chicken soup a lemony lift, whack the stalk with the flat edge of a knife blade to release its oils, add to the broth... then inhale.
