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.
  • 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
  1. 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.
