RAMPS - A very seasonal vegetable

Ramps are like Spring onions with roots but broad green leaves.  They only appear between April and mid June.  When I see them, I immediately grab to buy them and cook them at home.  They have a garlicky-onion taste; so they don't need much seasoning.

After you bring them home, wash it only before you cook them.
But first trim the roots out!
Put the cleaned ramps in a pan. (I'm using a wok here) with about 3TB of olive oil.
Just wait for the leaves to wilt in the pan keeping its beautiful bright green color.  Season the ramps with sea salt (fleur de sel) and serve.
