Tuna Pasta with Wild Garlic and Three-Cornered Leek

Quite often we feel we need to cook our wild ingredients but they can also be used really well raw – in this really simple lunch we use three-cornered leeks and wild garlic stems instead of raw onion. This recipe is a brilliant way to use up the thicker stems of the wild garlic that don’t go so well into pesto and other sauces.


  • 100g dried pasta
  • 1 tin tuna flake (in sunflower oil)
  • 2 tbsp Mayonaise
  • 30g wild garlic stems and three-cornered leek stems (finely chopped)
  • 50g mature cheddar, grated
  • Plenty of Seasoning
