Grilled Ramps with Asparagus

One of the early wild foods of Spring, ramps are available at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market. A quick, delicious way to prepare almost all vegetables is grilling. Grill ramps quickly to make the most of their wild, earthy flavor.
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 bunch (about 20) ramps
  • 1 bunch thin asparagus
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
DIRECTIONS
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Trim and discard the root hairs from ramps. Trim tough ends from asparagus.

  • Place ramps and asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet or in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.

  • Arrange ramps and asparagus on the hot grill in a single layer. Grill until hot and grill marks appear, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to platter, and serve hot or at room temperature.
