There is something about a food that is only available, for a few short weeks every year especially when we are talking about ramps. Ramps are a type of wild onion, sort of like a green onion with a garlic onion flavor. They are only available in the early spring mostly at farmers markets and are so flavorful they just need to be sauteed with a bit of oil and a sprinkling of salt. For this recipe I just dressed it up a bit for fun with more garlic and a sprinkling of Pecorino.
- 1 bunch ramps
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pinch salt and pepper
- teaspoon grated pecorino
Clean and trim ramps, don't cut them.
Heat a pan over medium high heat. Add oil and then ramps. Saute tossing with tongs, until it begins to wilt, remove to plate, sprinkle with salt, pepper and pecorino.
