Ramps, also known as wild leeks, are a much-anticipated spring arrival at East Coast farmers’ markets. Because they aren’t cultivated, their season is short and their area of availability is limited. But hounds have some good ideas for highlighting the flavor of this wild member of the onion family.

Ramps go very well with eggs: LNG212 had some in a “delicious” frittata, while relizabeth suggests cooking them in an omelet with ricotta cheese. Simple sautés also work well: MB fka MB sautéed some in olive oil with salt and pepper, and then tossed them with some pasta, and LNG212 sautés ramps with garlic as a side dish. relizabeth also recommends making ramp pesto.

HillJ uses them to make ramp soup, and MMRuth enjoyed this ramp risotto, though she used an entire bunch of ramps instead of the specified four.
