Love ramps. They are in season and love adding them to dishes. They are very pungent and if you don't mind strong garlic breathe, then make a pesto.
I added some to my bean chili instead of garlic and shallots.
I used the rest of it to make a quick pesto.
Here is my recipe for Ramp Pesto.
A bunch of ramps, cleaned and chopped.
A few leaves of basil.
1/2 cup of toasted pine nuts.
Olive Oil as needed start with 1/2 cup
Blend in a blender or in a Cuisinart. Place ingredients in the blender or Cuisinart bowl. Add the olive oil slowly and pesto consistently.
Enjoy with your favorite pasta, sourdough, and some grilled vegetables.
