Ramps, or wild leeks, are one of the fleeting pleasures of early spring. Their pungent, almost spicy garlicky-onion flavor mellows a bit with cooking, and this creamy risotto is the perfect vehicle to show them off, paired with two other spring vegetable stars, morels and asparagus.

Although I hate to address all the changes made to the original recipe, I did make changes due to availability and preferences. Used leeks 'cause couldn't find ramps. Hate mushrooms so left them out. All else the same, but reduced by half for a three serving solution since just hubby and me. This was excellent when paired with grilled pork chops with a rub of dried thyme, allspice, salt and pepper. Lydia, thank you very much! Highly recommend!
