The Indy Winter Farmers Market has a few weeks left in its season. So we thought that we would have them write a blog and highlight one of the many vegtables that you can buy at the farmers market. This week’s Sun King Community Partner Spotlight blog covers ramps!
A ramp, or perhaps you’ve heard it called a wild leek, is a wild onion that is native to North America. The beautiful broad and colorful leaves set this delicious treat apart from the rest. These little beauties are a wonderful addition to egg dishes, soups, casseroles, rice and potato dishes.
It’s robust flavor of onions and garlic will spice up any recipe to a burst of flavors on your taste buds. Preparing ramps is pretty easy. Just cut off the roots, rinse thoroughly, and scrub off any excess dirt. We’ve been luckily and had an appearance at the market this past week. A Couple Cooks blog has a couple recipes that involve ramps, chimichurri (or ramp classic) and a cheese omelette with ramp chimichurri!
For recipes visit http://www.acouplecooks.com and we hope to see you this Saturday, April 6th at the City Market to pick up some ramps and your free chipotle token! (limited to the first 250 visitors)
