Post your "Garden Forager" recipes :)

So I fancied some toast this morning, and the (East Facing) garden was looking very inviting, not just to me but also for some bees that were weighing up my handmade mahogany hotel (pics to follow hopefully!) so I thought why not kill two birds with one stone and make some toast with a twist, using some things found in the garden.


2 Sliced buns (so 4 bread bases)

1 bovril cube (grated) could use Oxo/Marmite/Vegemite/?

4 or 5 good sized chives (obviously leaving the ones with flower heads)

Approx. 20-30 wild garlic leaves (the immature ones ~2 inches long)

Good knob of butter/spread (I used butterly light)

1 tbsp Oil


Lightly toast the buns (or leave as is if you prefer toast a bit soft like me)

Grate the bovril into a small bowl

Cut the chives and wild garlic into small bits and add in

Add the Spread and Oil

Mix to a, well, mixture image

Spread onto the bread and toast for 5 mins or so.



To be fair I was pleasantly surprised how good it tasted, all the better as some came from the garden. image

    Good on you for consuming something out of the garden already!  All I've had is some basil thinnings over pasta, from the windowsill where the seedlings are awaiting to go out to be hardened off next week.
