Wild Rice with Mushrooms and Ramps

Spring is the time to harvest ramps, or wild onions, and this recipe is a good one to highlight their savory garlicky onion flavor. I cooked some of the wild rice that I harvested last fall and added some sliced mushrooms and wild ramps to create a flavorful side dish that paired well with grilled salmon. Here is the recipe:

  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 10 wild ramps
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter

Cook rice in water until done. Chop ramps into small pieces. Sauté white parts with mushrooms in olive oil. Add green parts to cooked wild rice (do not heat). Add sautéed ramps and mushrooms to rice. Stir in butter, salt snd pepper and combine. Serve warm.
