Edible Weeds Recipes
It's #WeedsWednesday and this recipe for Green Goddess Dip is a delicious nutritious dip or a healthy alternative to mayo. It is super versatile, and makes use of many common garden and wild weeds, but you can also mix and match with rocket, spinach, silverbeet or kale.
I just head out to the yard and pick a big handful of what's looking lush. Today I gathered nasturtium, chickweed, onion weed, dandelion, oxalis, dock, plantain and wild mustard which are lush and abundant in my garden at the moment.
We enjoyed it last night with tempeh nuggets, brown rice and mushrooms. You could have it with hot chips, steamed potatoes or kumara, with roast veggies or an omelette or quiche, you could also stir it through pasta or as a side to a cooked breakfast.
