Ramps and Potato Soup

Ramps have a lovely onion-garlic taste and are delicious raw, lightly sautéed, or in this amazing soup. They can also be used in recipes which call for leeks, or as a substitute for onion.

  • 1 cup thinly sliced ramps including bulb, stem, and leaves
  • 3 stalks celery thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • sea salt
  • pepper


  • Sauté the leeks and celery in the melted butter for about 10 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of chicken broth, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and the remaining broth, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15–20 minutes.
