Do you want a taste of the forest? The fresh air, the wild garlic, the scent of pine, everything about the forest shouts discover and explore. This is exactly what we do when we cook with wild foods and embark on a foraging adventure.
Today we went to the woods and found the most delicious wild greens, fiddleheads, wild garlic, scarlet elf cups and jelly ears. Now we are ready to whip up a tasty bowl of pho to warm us up for the evening.
- 1 bunch of Wild Garlic Leaves
- A few leaves of wild mustard
- Cleavers aka Sticky Willies
- Fresh Ginger
- Mushrooms (any kind will do but we used Jelly ears and Elf cups because we had some freshly picked)
- 1 large onion
- Chili Flakes
- A pinch of cinnamon
- Beef Stock
- Mint to garnish
Now you are ready to put your dish together and this couldn’t be easier. Saute the onion in a tablespoon of butter, add the wild garlic leaves
for two minutes. Now add the ginger, wild mustard and Fiddleheads. Stir gently for 1 minute. Add chili flakes, peppercorns and cinnamon. After another two minutes frying add the mushrooms. Now gently ladle the beef stock over the mixture, stirring as you pour. When your soup mix has boiled add the noodles.
I always have a few crackers on the side.
Now you are ready to serve and enjoy!
