~*~ Dandelion Stir Fry ~*~

The May issue of Herbal Roots is all about those wonderful Dandelions. Check it out , you maybe interested in buying this months issue of Herbal Roots just for the info on dandelions , here's the link ( ). Please add my name as a referral , if you purchase. I'll be gathering more dandelion greens today , before Dh mows. This Dandelion stir fry is delicious , thought I would share the recipe.

Dandelion Stir Fry

3 boneless chicken breast or pork tenderloins cut to bite size pieces
2 cups or more of dandelion greens
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 small red onion
Crushed red pepper
Sea salt
Olive Oil

Add washed dandelion leaves to a pot of water and cook 10 minutes , drain water. You may want to boil a second time if they're bitter. Saute red onion in olive oil , remove when tender and browned as you like. Add minced garlic cloves to oil , saute to they turn clear , add chicken or pork to sauteed garlic and stir-fry until done. When chicken is done , add dandelion greens , caramelized onions , sea salt and crushed red pepper to your liking. Continue stir-frying until greens and onions are heated through. I have served this stir-fry over rice and angel hair pasta , it was delicious both ways.

I love dandies ! I'll be trying your stir fry very soon.

I do both, sell and share the Flea Biscuits. And, thanks to you, I've just posted the recipe again today :)

I was told that you should pick
the greens of the dandelion before
the blossoms appear.

What do you think? Do you notice
the difference?

Juli , Thanks for sharing the recipes , I'm going to give them a try.

Flassie , You can use dandelions after they bloom , use the newer , most tender leaves that are sprouting out. You may want to boil them twice , it helps take some of the bitterness out. They are more bitter after they bloom , but it really depends on your taste buds.
