Wild Garlic Challenge – Week 4

We moved house at the weekend so with much of the kitchen packed in boxes and plenty of other priorities, the wild garlic challenge had to take a back seat.

The challenge wasn’t a complete write off though – this week was all about quality not quantity! I highly recommend you give these dishes a try.

Wild garlic carbonara. Spaghetti, bacon, wild garlic, eggs, parmesan and black pepper transform into a quick, simple and satisfying dish. Use good quality smoked bacon or pancetta for this dish.

Wild garlic and cheese twice baked soufflé. OK, so a soufflé can be scary but the beauty of the twice baked version is that if it doesn’t rise as you’d hoped it doesn’t matter. Once it’s cooled, you turn it out of the ramekin, cover it in cheese and bake until golden. It might also seem like a bit much work for a week night meal but the soufflé can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge, or even frozen, before the second baking.

    I was looking for wild garlic recipes so you can imagine how pleased I was to discover your blog! I am full of inspiration for dinner. My children love wild garlic and the little family member often comes home with her pockets stuffed! We had chicken stuffed with wild garlic and mushroom for dinner last night – it was delicious! Have you tried wild garlic mayo or wild garlic butter?

      Hi, thank you for letting me know you tried the recipe and enjoyed it! It’s one of my favourites from the challenge. We had wild garlic butter in our wild garlic bread and I’m thinking of using it on top of some steak. We haven’t had wild garlic so far in my challenge but we have had it in previous years and it’s divine!
