Chive Drizzle

 I don’t know what it is, but I am seriously into foraging.  Whether for flower arrangements or food, it always ends up being a good experience- one that takes us on some sort of little adventure outside that ends up making life a little prettier or tastier. This simple drizzle adds depth and flavor to most anything, from soups to salads to vegetable side dishes. It’s incredibly good and can completely make a dish! This stuff is insane!!! Would be heaven over baked or mashed potatoes too!!

the drizzle over wild garlic soup

 

We don’t do pesticides in our yard and really haven’t been able to do a ton to the outside of our property yet so our grass has LOTS of plants other than grass growing in it which used to drive me crazy but now makes me really happy…  BECAUSE I had NO IDEA how delicious everything growing in it was!!!!  You can make this recipe with either chives, wild garlic or onion grass… it’s basically ALLL GOOD!!

I took the tops/ grass of the wild garlic stems and blended them with olive oil, salt and pepper and strained the solids out keeping only the oil portion to make a delish drizzle on top that we love to use on top of mashed potatoes. tomatoes, as a salad dressing and on top of  our favorite wild garlic soup! We’ve made it with chives too and it’s just as good!!
