SHABBAT VEGGIE FACT: Did you know you may…

SHABBAT VEGGIE FACT: Did you know you may have your own urban farm right in your front yard? Now, before you go sorting your lawnmower clippings, let do some research!

Dandelion herb, botanically belonging to the family of Asteraceae is one of the most sought-after herbs to spruce up our daily meals. Almost all the parts of the plant, leaves, flower tops, and root, are being used either for culinary purpose or as a curative remedy for certain medical conditions. The edible weird vegetable can be eaten raw in a salad or sautéed or boiled like spinach. It has a mild, slightly bitter taste and is a very good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese.

Caution: Make sure you do NOT eat dandelions taken from a yard that has applied pesticides. Do any of you have dandelion recipes? If so, we’d love to hear them! Shabbat Shalom #dandelions #growingintorah
