What To Do With Ramps: Ramp & Almond Pesto

A few weekends ago I visited Dupont Farmers Market with my friends and decided to pick up a bunch of ramps. I think I've only had ramps a few times in my life but have never cooked with them. My friend Cecilia suggested I make pesto, and that's exactly what I did.

What To Do With Ramps: Ramp & Almond Pesto
7 ramps: leaves and white parts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
olive oil
salt to taste

1. Puree ramps, almonds and Parmesan cheese with enough oil to reach your desired consistency. Season with salt.

Things to do with Ramp & Almond Pesto:
spread it on sandwiches
mix it into mayonnaise
add it to egg or tuna salad
use it instead of tomato sauce on pizza
I added mine to pasta with roasted asparagus and radishes and topped it with ricotta and basil.

Happy Monday!!!
