Orach With Spring Garlic


Time Required: 15 minutes

Yields: 4 servings

Adapted from Judson Grill

1 bunch spring garlic (with green stalks) or ramps

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 pound orach (not baby), about 8 cups, rinsed and dried

1/2 cup well-seasoned vegetable stock

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Salt and freshly ground pepper.

1. Trim roots from garlic or ramps. Cut off stalks, leaving one-half inch of green. Finely chop one tablespoon of the stalks and discard the rest.

2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add garlic or ramps and brown lightly, about 2 minutes. Add orach, stock and butter, season with salt and pepper, and stir-fry just until orach wilts, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chopped stalks. Serve as side dish with roast lamb or beef.
