I’ve got just a couple of dishes to share with you from week six of my wild garlic challenge but I’m looking forward to trying out several new recipes in the week ahead. My mind was working overtime the other day so I’m itching to get in the kitchen!
Wild garlic and chilli meatballs. With my father-in-law staying with us at the moment I bravely took on what I consider to be his signature dish, spaghetti and meatballs. These meatballs, made with just some green chilli, chopped wild garlic, a few breadcrumbs and seasoning, really packed a flavour punch. I was honoured to have him tell me he thought they were better than his own – and I’d drive miles for his meatballs!
Wild garlic mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is such an obvious way to use wild garlic that I wanted to discover other ideas before making it. The time was ripe this week. You could serve it with countless dishes (I’m dreaming of a hot roast chicken sandwich with wild garlic mayo right now!) but we enjoyed it with smoked salmon fishcakes and salad.
