Bear’s Garlic Creamy Soup

Bear’s Garlic Creamy Soup is a full of vitamins Spring soup. A season for bear’s garlic (which can be also called wild leek, ramps, wild garlic) is quite short, use it and cook this healthy soup. If you still have some ramps left, you can try out other recipes: Bear’s Garlic Cream Cheese or Bear’s Garlic Pesto.

Bear's garlic Creamy Soup served on a plate with toasts and double cream


  • 2 handfuls bear’s garlic/ ramps/ wild garlic/ wild leek
  • 1 handful of green pees young shoots (optional)
  • medium onion
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 5 potatoes
  • salt, pepper
  • nutmeg, fenugreek
  • 1 cup double cream
  • toasts for serving

Chop the onion. Heat butter in a larger sauce pan (about 3 liters/ 100 fl oz capacity). Saute the onion. Add 1.5 liter (50 fl oz) of water. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add half tea spoon of fenugreek and the same amount of nutmeg. Nutmeg is a spice that works very well with potatoes and spinach, fenugreek (kozieradka) is a valuable seasoning of all vegans. It adds to vegan dishes a taste of a broth.

Peel potatoes. Dice them into medium small cubes and add them to the sauce pan. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Once potatoes are almost cooked, add chopped bear’s garlic. I also added a bunch of green peas sprouts, as I got them in my garden on the balcony:) This is optional, gave an extra injection of vitamins into my soup:)

Let the greens cook for 5 minutes. Take the pan off the heat. Blend soup with hand blender. Add double cream to the soup or keep it separately for the individual choice of the person eating the soup.

Serve Bear’s Garlic Creamy Soup with good diced toasted bread. Soup is creamy, garlic flavored and thick. A taste of spring in Poland!

Smacznego! Enjoy!
