Jen's Wild Onion Soup
Jen Naylor loves cooking with wild onions. She points out that they are full of flavor, free to harvest and an easy way to get a fresh, seasonal vegetable into your diet. Jen digs up her wild onions to make use of the bulbs but notes that just clipping the tops off with scissors makes for a great substitute for chives. Here is her recipe for a simple miso soup that highlights the tasty plant.
