Dandelion Soup

dandelion harvest May 2019

Early Spring Dandelion leaves can be combined with Stinging Nettles and Lamb's Quarters to create the stock for this soup. If you would like, feel free to use any other vegetables you have on hand to add to the stock.

Wash all Wild Greens thoroughly before using.

Cut up greens and place them in a pot covered with fresh water. Add potatoes if you like.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

You can blend the stock or leave it as is.  If you added potatoes it will make the stock thicker when you blend it.  Add any other vegetable you would like to have in your finished soup.  Consider adding dandelion roots or buds to the pot as well as your standby favorite veggies.

Season to taste.  Optional ingredients may include a grain or rice.  To garnish, you may want a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt, a dandelion flower, or a sprinkle of parsley.

Bon Appetite!
