- 1kg spring greens, hard central stem removed, finely sliced
- 150g wild garlic leaves, chopped (see tip)
- 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
- Good knob of butter
- Put the greens and garlic in a sauté pan over a medium heat, stirring with tongs. Add a very small splash of water and wilt for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the sherry vinegar to the pan and reduce for 1 minute, then add the butter and season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss to coat in the buttery juices and serve immediately.
Wild garlic grows in shaded woodland during April and May. If you can’t get hold of any, use 3-4 cloves of young, new-season garlic (also known as wet or green garlic) or 1 clove of regular garlic instead.
