Cook time: 0

1 ripe avocado – mashed
1 medium tomato – chopped
1 wild leek (ramp) – chopped
Fresh lemon
Salt and pepper

Thoroughly wash wild leeks (ramps) and chop. Add ramps, avocado, tomato and squeeze of fresh lemon into a bowl and fold everything together to incorporate.

Concept behind the dish:
My favorite guacamole recipe growing up came from a kids cookbook. The dish was simple: ripe avocado, chopped tomatoes, chopped green onion, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt.

I wanted to replicate this simple guacamole using ramps which have a natural onion and garlic flavor. The flavor profile of the ramps allowed me to replace the green onion and garlic powder in the recipe from my childhood.Guacamole with Wild Leeks also called Ramps
