Dandelion is one of the most nutritious leafy greens. Its rich in calcium and vitamins A, C, D, K and B2. Its often used to treat disorders of the liver and digestive system.
They can be harvested all year long but are less bitter in the spring when the leaves are still small.
Common ways to eat dandelions:
- In a salad
- Sauteed with olive oil, onions and garlic
- Boiled and topped with butter
- In a smoothie
Here's my Dandelion Green Smoothie recipe:
1 handful dandelion leaves
2 handfuls spinach
1 apple, quartered and cored
1/2 cup coconut milk
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
Mix together in a blender until smooth and enjoy!
Do you have a good dandelion recipe? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
