Shelter knight from vegetable (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

leek

Here is my best explanation:

'vegetable' is the definition.

(leek is a kind of vegetable)

'shelter knight' is the subsidiary indication.

'shelter' becomes 'lee' (I've seen this before).

'knight' becomes 'k'.

'lee'+'k'='leek'

'from' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for leek that I've seen before include "Vegetable emblem of Wales", "Vegetable - Welsh symbol", "Cylindrical vegetable", "Onion relative", "Plant; Welsh emblem", "Edible plant, Welsh symbol", "Bulb", "Vegetable related to onions", "Onion family vegetable" and "Emblem of Wales".)
