How to make a wild garlic omelette
Spring brings one of my favourite foraging foods - wild garlic. It has a strong smell but the taste is mild. It grows mainly in woodland areas and goes through its life cycle mainly before the trees are fully in leaf. That way it gathers the sunlight before it is blocked by the tree leaf canopy.
In this recipe I make a wild garlic omelette. This is a very simple recipe:
1)Beat some eggs and mix with milk.
2)Chop some wild garlic leaves and add them into the eggs and milk mix.
3) Add seasoning to taste.
4)Put a bit of oil into a frying pan and heat to a modest temperature.
5)Pour the mix into the frying pan.
6) When it is cooked on the base, fold over one half of the omelette to cook the inside.
Then eat and enjoy!
