I am super excited about this recipe for four reasons.
- It is Korean.
- It is vegan.
- The plant she uses is a naturalized invasive weed in most of America and is readily available without using up agricultural resources.
- I have TONS of Lamb’s Quarters growing in my garden.
The subject of using weeds for food and medicine has always fascinated me. One of my favorite herbs to use is one of the most common weeds we see here in America; the humble Dandelion.
Remember to always know absolutely for sure what you are picking to use for food or medicine. Many useful plants resemble deadly ones. A field guide with very good pictures is highly recommended, as well as consulting with local herbalists and wildcrafters.
Be cautious of using weeds from public property or the property of others; many people readily use horrid pesticides which can be very harmful if ingested.
Happy hunting everyone. Enjoy.
