Vegan Wild Garlic Soup

It’s that time of the year. If you’ve braved the unpredictable spring weather to go on a walk, you’ll have seen the wild garlic (also known as ramsons) popping up everywhere on forest floors. Next time you do, bring a bag with you and take some with you! Just make sure you do your research beforehand so you don’t mistake it for a different plant. Foraging is not only fun, it also means free food, and you’ll be set to try out this unique and yummy soup! (If you don’t or can’t go and pick wild garlic yourself, check out your farmer’s market – they might have it there too!).
