Ramp Cream Cheese

Ramp Cream Cheese

This ramp (wild leek) cream cheese spread is the perfect spring treat to spread onto a bagel, stuff into an omelette, or add to a dip!

The sour cream in the ingredients is optional, but it does add a nice silkiness to the end product. 

This is a once a year treat, so spread this stuff on thick and enjoy it!

  • Prep Time10 min
  • Yield4-6 servings


  • 8oz (227g) plain full-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) full-fat sour cream (optional)
  • 2 whole ramps (wild leeks) with bulbs
  • 2-6 ramp leaves (depending on how garlicky you like it)
  • Freshly cracked black pepper



Wash the ramps well, then slice the leaves and bulbs finely. Chop the sliced ribbons a few times with the knife. 


Add the cream cheese and sour cream to a sturdy bowl and use a wooden spoon or strong fork to stir, then whip it. 

Once it’s beginning to feel smooth and stir much easier, add the ramps and a few grinds of black pepper.
