Ramps Recipe - 3 Onion and Beer Soup
3 Onion-Beer Soup makes 4 servings
2 c. mixed chopped onions, ramps bulbs and greens, spring onions, and chives
3 T olive oil
2 T flour
1 1/2 c. oatmeal stout beer
1 c. vegetable stock
salt and pepper to taste
croutons for serving
1/2 c. shredded Swiss cheese
1. Sautée the chopped onions in the olive oil until they are translucent and wilted, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the flour to the pot, and cook to create a light roux. Pour in the oatmeal stout and vegetable stock, whisking to prevent lumps. Bring the soup up to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Serve with croutons and shredded Swiss cheese on top of the soup.
