Recipe: Wild Garlic Bread

Wild garlic, allium ursinum, is currently in season here in sunny south Devon. The beautiful garlic-scented plant is everywhere right now and it’s delicious.

The leaves are my favourite part. I pick two or three from each plant so it can keep on growing. Patches here can get pretty large so you can get a decent harvest that way. This garlic bread ‘recipe’ is nice and easy. Great for after a hard day’s forage.

Wild Garlic Bread


1 demi baguette

About 6 leaves of wild garlic

About 4 tablespoons of vegan butter

Pre heat the oven to 200°c

Make cuts in the baguette. You want about nine cuts, on the diagonal, about three quarters of the way through.

Make the garlic butter: finely chop the garlic leaves and beat into the butter.

Spoon the garlic into the cuts, about a teaspoon in each one.

Wrap the baguette in foil and bake in the oven for twenty minutes.

Survival Food: Vegan Mofo Day 16

As I woke up to a mustard yellow sky this morning so this is a rather good day to write about food we could eat in an apocalypse. Yesterday I put on my foraging boots on and went out to grab some rose hips. Actually I managed to do it all in flats. I got 500g of hips no more than five minutes away from my front door.

So what to do with my newly acquired hips? Well for that we’re going to go back in time to a trip to Ikea when I needed a post shopping pick me up and found a rather promising looking bottle of Rosehip Drink. 

As I was enjoying it I though about all of the rose hip recipes I haven’t tried yet. I thought that I would pick a bunch the first chance I got. Though I probably wouldn’t have bothered if it wasn’t for this prompt. As I was forced into action by mofo I made rosehip cordial following this recipe. It’s yum. I’m planning on serving it with lemonade for bonus sugar.
