I wanted to thank everyone that came to my class this past Saturday. The recipe I promised you is on my blog , purslane tabbouleh. For all that have never heard of purslane it is a sprawling succulent you have probably seen in your yard, and it has more omega 3’s than any other green! I was so worried that I could not find enough of the super-weed purslane outside to forage, and my seed had sprouted, but not enough to come up with for a class. I was on a mission to find enough to come up with a recipe for you all, and Voila! To my surprise a farmer from the Pontiac market called me and had a huge bunch! I decided to make tabbouleh with it and I am so glad I did. Everyone loved it!
I showed the class how to make the bitter dandelion green into a yummy salad. How to pick and store grape leaves, and make a healthier version of vegetarian stuffing. Also, of course, the superfood of the bunch purslane! So glad you all got to sample it.
Please feel free to look up these recipes and many others on this blog. I also offer cooking class parties in homes if you’d like to host a fun party with friends! Comments welcome. Have a great summer, and remember…don’t spray the weeds, forage them!
