Wild garlic is growing everywhere at the moment.  On damp mornings it gives a heady aroma which would suggest it has a strong taste, but this is not the case.  It’s similar to eating spinach but with a mild garlic flavour.  It is very versatile because it only needs to be shown the hot water and it’s cooked!  

In this recipe we’ve paired it with cheddar in a warm, delicious tart which makes a great light lunch with some crispy lettuce on the side.
