The Balance of flavors that I like in this dish

The sweetness of the leeks balances out the acidity of the fresh tomatoes and as a final result, you get a very tasty and sweet meal. A very nutritious and delicious vegan recipe that I really love cooking! You can reduce or increase the red chili flakes according to your spiciness tolerance and add a few drops of lemon juice while you plate it if you like tangy flavors.
