Dandelion season

These days I’m trying to eat as much dandelion as I can. I always go and pick it by myself because it means I get to spend time outdoors and look into the beautiful eye-soothing green color for a while. I consider myself fortunate to be able to pick it in a clean countryside environment, away from (at least some of the) sources of pollution. I look forward to dandelion every spring and this year especially so because winter seemed to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to say goodbye.

Sometimes it happens I pick too much dandelion at once. As dandelion is not meant to be stored for more than a couple of days AND as two bowls of dandelion (eaten as salad) per day can easily become too much for me to gobble down, I found a way to eat more of it but with less effort: as an instant stir-fry. Take this plate (on the photo), for example. It made my lunch a couple of days ago and I felt most pleased about it. Cooked buckwheat kasha, scrambled egg, sauteed mushrooms and stir-fried dandelion with garlic (stir-fried in no more than 10 seconds!). Perfect early spring lunch, don’t you think? I ate it together with a bowl of dandelion (you didn’t see that one coming, did you?? 😉 ;)) and boy it felt good. Now I can go to pick another basket of dandelion…
