  • Tip

    Wild thing
    We've sent you a big bunch of new season wild garlic. You need around 1/2 of it to make this soup (you can add more if you like things extra garlicky). Store the remaining wild garlic and use it within a couple of days. Try making a pesto out of it by whizzing with toasted pine nuts or almonds, a clove or 2 of garlic, some toasted breadcrumbs, lemon zest and juice and olive oil. Toss with pasta or stir into rice.
