Wild Garlic Soup is made up of onion, garlic, potato and foraged wild garlic leaves. It’s a vibrant green, healthy and delicious soup. 



  • 15ml (1 tbsp) butter
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 450g (1lb) potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 750ml (3 cups) vegetable stock
  • 150g (5oz) wild garlic leaves/ramsons, washed
  • salt and pepper, to taste 


  1. Heat the butter and oil in a large saucepan
  2. Gently fry the onion until softened then add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. 
  3. Tip in the potatoes and vegetables and bring the contents to a boil. 
  4. Lower the heat to a slow simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked. 
  5. Add the wild garlic to the soup and let it wilt, which would take about 1 minute. 
  6. Transfer the contents to a food processor (or use a hand blender) and blend until smooth. 
  7. Season to taste then divide the soup between four bowls.
  8. [Optional] Drizzle with cream and top with wild garlic flowers. 
  9. Serve with your favourite bread on the side. 


  • If you like your soup to have a thinner consistency, add a bit more vegetable stock at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.
