Wild Garlic, Parsley & Ground Elder Cheese Spread

My love for wild garlic knows no bounds, but this simple recipe combines two of my favourite foraged spring greens – wild garlic (ramsons) and ground elder – together with some parsley. This cheese spread is delicious on oatcakes or crusty bread, and perfect for brunches or lunches were you want to serve something a bit special looking. It’s great as a dip for crudités too, such as cucumber or carrot sticks.


  • 100g cream cheese
  • 100g Greek yoghurt
  • 10g wild garlic leaves
  • 10g ground elder leaves
  • 10g flat leaf parsley
  • salt & pepper
foraged wild garlic, ground elder and parsley


Whisk together the cream cheese and Greek yoghurt in a bowl, together with a pinch of salt and some cracked black pepper.

Finely chop the wild garlic, ground elder and parsley, and stir in to the cheese mixture.

Taste, and adjust the salt & pepper to taste if needed.

And that’s it! Really super simple. You can use few flowered leek instead, if you can’t get your hands on ramsons, and you can experiment with different herbs too, depending on what you like. I think this combination goes really well together, but other options that go well in cheese spread include basil and dill.
