Watercress and Wild Garlic Soup and Rack of Lamb

Posted By Kerri

I went to Borough Market on Friday, primarily to replenish some Mexican ingredients we’ve run out of but also to find something for Sunday’s dinner. While I was there, I also spotted some wild garlic which I’ve never seen before. I wasn’t sure what to do with it but at some point it struck us that it would make a good soup with the watercress languishing in the bottom of the fridge. It did make a good soup but the flavour was more delicate than we would have liked. I had considered also using some of the fresh garlic I bought at the same time but decided against it on the basis that the leaves of the wild garlic tasted reasonably strong.

One of the other things I bought was a rack of lamb. This is one of our favourite things to eat and it’s been a while since we last cooked one. We kept this very simple and served it with some sauteed potatoes and some asparagus. The lamb was good but not as big on flavour as the lamb we had from Allens. The asparagus was perfect though, much better than the early season stuff we’ve been eating recently.
