Creamed Ramps

Here's a quick and easy spring side dish that will go well with a perfectly grilled steak or fillet of fish. I start with a quick roux to make the thickening agent for the cream sauce, and preserve the fresh and spicy flavor of ramps by cooking them only briefly.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 Pound ramps
  • 1/4 Pound baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup grated Parmesan

Directions

Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring for 2 minutes. Incorporate the milk into the pot with a whisk. Add the cream, ramps, and baby spinach. Add the Parmesan cheese and stir.

Ramp Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Ramp Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
