Breakout Trick
To prepare shredded leek, you can use a food processor slicer blade with a minimal space, which produces very thin shreds. Alternatively, you can slice the leeks very thinly.
If you do not have an air fryer, you can roast these in the oven at 400°F for 20 minutes, turning at the halfway point.
