What’s growing on … a look at what’s currently growing around our neighbourhood, and an idea about how to prepare it.
There are a lot of spring greens available now – wild ones out in the meadows such as purslane, dandelions greens, miner’s lettuce, and plantain; and garden greens like arugula, chard, beet tops, sorrel and, of course, chick weed.
For a Spring treat, roll them all up together into a fresh and tasty Spring Roll.
Wash and sort through all your greens, follow the instructions for the rice paper sheets, and roll the greens up. Add a tangy sauce, something a sweet ‘n sour or a Thai peanut sauce. Lunch is served!
