Wild Garlic and Tomato Soup

April 26, 2010

I have received a lovely recipe from 11 year old Matty Varney of Southampton (it was sent in by his father who is a subscriber to my ezine). Matty was inspired to create this dish whilst in the middle of their local ramson wood. Once back home Matty wrote the recipe and cooked the delicious soup using the wild garlic leaves gathered.  I tried out the recipe a couple of weeks ago and it is very tasty.  I have reproduced it below and hope you will enjoy it too.
