$5 Friday: Golden Jewelled Risotto

Posted on

What a fascinating post from Serina Huang at Ms Frugal Ears! I had no idea that Dandelions are one of the healthiest superfoods around. She explains: “They are incredibly good for you, in particular they have detoxifying properties that are good for your liver and some extremely good cancer fighting properties. The best time to eat the leaves is very early spring while they are green and tender – once they flower they become bitter. But there is nothing to stop you from eating the flowers themselves”

I have been accused recently of liking to cook with flowers.  I am entirely guilty of this: I love incorporating edible flowers in my cooking.  And today I am going one step further and incorporating an edible weed.
