All my life, I've seen the Haitian women in my house mash up poireau (leek), with garlic and other spices in their "pilon" to use as natural seasoning when cooking but I never bothered to know what it was good for besides the flavor it adds to the food we eat.

Cooking Haitian Style: Spice it up with some leek, parsley and Tomatoes

Many Haitians use these tasty vegetables to spice up their foods everyday: Poireau (leek), Persil (parsley), and tomate (tomato).

I my house, I stay way from all the artificial flavorings that are often loaded with sodium and use natural spices and herbs to cook delicious all natural Haitian food.
