Simply Ramps with Pecorino


There is something about a food that is only available, for a few short weeks every year especially when we are talking about ramps. Ramps are a type of wild onion, sort of like a green onion with a garlic onion flavor. They are only available in the early spring mostly at farmers markets and are so flavorful they just need to be sauteed with a bit of oil and a sprinkling of salt. For this recipe I just dressed it up a bit for fun with more garlic and a sprinkling of Pecorino.

Clean and trim ramps, don't cut them.

Heat a pan over medium high heat.  Add oil and then ramps.  Saute tossing with tongs, until it begins to wilt, remove to plate, sprinkle with salt, pepper and pecorino.
