Cooking Italian Dandelion Greens

 

This week’s Vegetable Box contains Italian Dandelion Greens…. what to do?

Dandelion Greens are bitter and VERY healthy!  With 7 times the Lutein contained in carrots, we know we should eat greens like this occasionally.

The first link is a simple way of cooking the greens, the longer the cooking, the less bitter. (You can even boil the greens before cooking to reduce the bitterness – at the expense of losing nutrients.)

This next recipe is my favorite, incorporation the greens in a pasta dish (we use this method for arugula in the summer too).
