More Entries Into The Hundred Yard Diet: July 16, 2007

The most common weeds in my garden are all edible; dandelions, plantain, purslane and lamb’s quarters.

It’s pretty cool to weed your garden and eat the weeds!

Here, lamb’s quarters are growing over a nice succulent purslane:

The lamb’s quarters are a cool salad green, chewy and a bit nutty, reminiscent of arugula or some other non-vapid green. The purslane is succulent and a bit acidic, like sheep sorrel. I’m gonna try it in a raw Asian salad with sesame oil and maybe a lemon-tahini dressing.

I don’t know exactly why, but I seem to get an inordinate amount of pleasure from finding free, organic, delicious food!

Nest week’s episode of “Speaking of Faith” will feature Barbara Kingsolver. Thought you might be interested.
