Weed Eating Italian Style

Here at Homegrown Revolution we’re big proponents of eatin’ your weeds, which is why we were delighted to stumble upon an article on virtualitalia.com that contains a couple of weed recipes including dandelion egg salad and stinging nettle lasagna. As the article points points out Italians are one of only a few Western cultures that still actively forage.

Spring approaches and with it a free salad bar and produce section just waiting to be picked. Homegrown Revolution declares 2007 the year of the weed!

  1. we used to have old greek guys and this old german lady wander our fields to pick dandelions and burdock and purslane. this was on a farm in illinois…

    dandelion kimchi and dandelion coffee are also so wonderful and easy to make.

    getting that liver care and minerals whenever i can to offset my homemade fermeted bev consumption and just general connection to the beautious plant.

    i just made a pate of dandelion, tofu, and wild plum jam and a dash of tamari and it was rockin’!
