Morel and Ramp Crostini

Morel and Ramp Crostini
This is a simple and delicious appetizer. It calls for a generous ½ cup of ramps. If you want a more mildly flavored dish, cut the ramps back to ¼ cup or so. You may want to experiment until you've found the combination just right for you. This appetizer may be served warm or at room temperature. May also be served as a side dish.

2 cups Morel mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed and chopped
2 tsp finely minced garlic
½ cup fresh ramps, cleaned, trimmed, and chopped fine (white part only)
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley
2 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Crusty baguette bread, sliced diagonally


Heat the olive oil until hot in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the ramps and cook until softened.

Add the morels, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes.

 Add the remaining ingredients and continue cooking for about 3 minutes more.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor and puree.


Spread on warm bread.
