Grilled Ramps

Ramps are Appalachian wild onions that combine the flavors of both garlic and onions. We often treat them like scallions. They have a short season and are delicate enough that they, too, can be eaten raw—but we also love to grill them.

Grilled Ramps Ingredients

8 ramps
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Serves 4
Preheat a grill.

How to make Grilled Ramps ?

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, toss until the ramps are evenly coated with the oil, and set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.

Arrange the ramps on the hot grill. Watch them carefully, moving them around with a pair of tongs to keep them from burning. The ramps are done when they wilt and soften—it should take only a couple minutes.
