ramp and potato soup

Filed under: Cooking — emma @ 9:15 pm

Well ok! This turned out alright!

Lookin’ a little crazy-eyed but happy with the soup. All I did was clean up the ramps, chop the bulbs and stems and cook them up first and then add in some chopped potatoes and homemade vegetable broth. Gave that a whiz with the immersion blender when the potatoes were tender, then added the chopped ramp greens to wilt. Threw in some celery seed, rosemary, dill, salt, pepper, and a little soymilk, and served with some back yard chives on top.

Lesson learned here: don’t hesitate with ramps. I guess I mean that two ways: a) they’ll be great no matter what you put them in, and b) seriously, they are so much easier to clean before they start to wilt and get slimy. Put the hustle on.
