Wild Leek Frittata

 

Wild leeks, commonly known as ramps, are quickly becoming a culinary delicacy in Canada. With a flavour best described as green onion with a strong garlic smell, ramps are used in many springtime recipes such as soup and egg dishes, or pickled and used in salads, but ramps can substitute for onion or garlic in any dish. Wild leeks are a perennial plant that grow in old woods and ravines, so if you are lucky enough to find a growth area, you can keep going back to it year after year as long as the forest stays uncut.
