Creamy wild garlic soup


Serves 6

50g butter
150g potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
Salt and black pepper
900ml chicken or vegetable stock
250ml cream
150g wild garlic leaves, stems removed, washed, dried and roughly chopped

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium-low heat. Add the potatoes and onions and season well. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes until softened but not coloured, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for another 6-8 minutes until the potatoes and onions are very soft.
  3. Add the wild garlic and bring to the boil. Cook with the lid off for 4-5 minutes just until the garlic is cooked; do not overcook or the soup will lose its vibrant colour.
  4. Use a stick blender to whizz the soup until smooth. Stir in the cream and add more salt or pepper as desired.
  5. Serve sprinkled with a few wild garlic flowers, if desired.
