I live in the desert southwest where ramps are not available or even known. What do you suggest as a substitute.

I'd go with leeks. The younger the better.

although not exactly the same flavor profile, I looked at this recipe and thought that broccoli rabe would be a good substitute.

Leeks, garlic and scallions would be a good mix. Ramps are pungent in their garlic flavor but also very scallion-y. Leeks would add nice softness to the whole thing.
