We recently enjoyed an amazing evening of slow food in an 1831 stone farmhouse. Old Tioga Farm is a farm-to-table restaurant. Our first of five courses was a frittata with spinach and goat cheese. So, after coming home from foraging today for ramps and garlic mustard, I knew what I wanted to make myself for lunch – an individual Ramp and Garlic Mustard Frittata.
I found both the ramps and the garlic mustard growing along a stream, and both are easy picks. You can read more about foraging for ramps here. Garlic mustard is a common, and invasive biennial weed in the mustard family and has a mild garlic taste.

In my post on foraging dos and don’ts I caution that it is always best not to over harvest so that a plant can continue to grow year after year. With invasive plants like garlic mustard, feel free to take it all, and to pull the plant out by the root. You will be doing our forests a favor.
The recipe ingredients are for one serving, baked in a single serve baking dish like these.
In what ways have you enjoyed ramps or garlic mustard?
