Fiddleheads & Ramps lightly sautéed with shitake mushrooms and red & yellow peppers 



4 oz fiddleheads

4 - 6 oz bunch ramps

1/4  red pepper

1/4  yellow pepper

2- 3 large shitake mushrooms

2 cloves of garlic

3 tbsp olive oil


  1. Clean & trim the fiddleheads - leaving 1 - 2 inches of the stem.
  2. Clean & trim the root tips off the ramps and gently pat them dry with a paper towel.
  3. Cut the red & yellow peppers into cube size chunks.
  4. Trim just a little off the tip of the shitake mushrooms (only the dirty part - not losing too much of the stem), slice the mushroom & chop into smaller pieces.
  5. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a non stick pan and add mushrooms. When slightly browned, add the peppers, garlic and s & p to taste. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan & set aside in a bowl.
  6. Steam the fiddleheads for approximately 5 - 7 minutes until tender crisp. (*While steaming fiddleheads - start sauté of the ramps)
  7. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to the same pan and place the ramps in the pan. Move them around gently in the pan to keep them whole while cooking for about 2 - 3 minutes until wilted.
  8. Add the steamed fiddleheads and cook until warmed. Add s & p to taste. Remove from the pan and plate with peppers & mushrooms mixture sprinkled over the top.


I recommend to have this as a side dish with grilled fish or marinated grilled tofu.
