When it’s pouring with rain, it’s easy to feel fed up. But when April comes around and that wet, muddy ground suddenly bursts into life and presents us with a carpet of emerald green, lush wild garlic, you’ll forget about the squelchy walks because it’s time to start foraging.

This Easter our house is in revision mode with hard-working teenagers trying to cram everything into the last remaining weeks before exams. They need regualr fuelling and this wild garlic hummus is perfect. For an instant re-charge, serve with a pile of lightly toasted crusty bread far away from a paper-strewn desk
