Seven soups every Saturday: soup recipes with ramps

Ramp-nettle-sunchoke-soup-3

When I say ramps, do you think of highway exits, or furniture moving trucks? Or do you think of the wild leeks you find at farmers' markets for just a few weeks every year? Ramps, a seasonal delicacy, really are wild leeks, though they look like large, leafy scallions and taste more like garlic. If you're a forager, ramps are yours for the picking in early Spring. The rest of us rely on local farmers, as we should, to do the harvesting.

Seven soup recipes with ramps caught my eye this week:

Ramp udon soup with bacon consommé and asparagus tempura, from Habeas Brulee

Ramp and potato soup with saffron, chives and tomatoes, from Cooking Books

Sunchoke ramp and nettle soup, from No Recipes

Creamy potato and ramp soup, from Once A Chef Always a Chef

Ramp and white cheddar cheese soup, from Wild Edible

White bean and ramp soup, from Cuisine Capers

Chorizo soup with ramps, from The Simmer Blog

I've never tasted ramps; never even seen them in Utah!

This is a case of serendipity . . . I just discovered some ramps at the bottom of my (newwish) garden in London. This is a really timely reminder of what I can do with them. Cheers!

Kalyn, they're common here at farmers' markets in the spring, and foragers know where to find them. Wish I had some in my garden.

Rachel, that's great timing! I hope you can use some of these recipes.
